    Microsoft has just released a Windows Vista® Performance and Tuning Guide. This guide is a part of the Springboard series and is available for download in pdf and xps formats.

    Microsoft appears to be extending its Windows Vista marketing efforts even further by releasing this guide. Many of the tuning tips, however, are not specific to Windows Vista. But they have been well categorized and explained in a simple to understand manner.

    The guide looks at the following areas of performance improvement:
    - Making configuration changes that help a computer feel more responsive when you use it.
    - Using hardware to boost the actual physical speed of a computer.
    - Making configuration changes that help a computer to start faster.
    - Making the computer more reliable may help increase performance.
    - Monitoring performance occasionally so that you can stop problems before they get too big.

    While the bulk of this guide focuses on performance improvements on a single computer, this guide also takes a look at some of the tools used in enterprise environments to help make performance tuning manageable on a much larger scale.

    Wow, I'd never thought MS would do something really useful for FREE! Hopefully this will be more useful than some online internet guides which require registry hacking and obscure commands...
    I'll definately try this out!
