Microsoft does this also…when you hover over the top of an icon in your quicklaunch, Windows will preload the dll for you.
Good to see Ubuntu moving toward their agreement with Microsoft (forthcoming?)

devnet – thanks for commenting on my blog. I’m glad to hear that Windows does this as well, is this new in Vista? Operating systems are becoming more and more advanced paving the way for new innovations.
I’m not sure if Ubuntu is part of the Microsoft/Novell deal. I believe Microsoft has an agreement with a couple of distros, Linspire and SuSe to work on open standards between Windows and Linux. This would be a great thing to see if both parties have good intentions.
Vista does preloading as well which is a good step.
For the record, Ubuntu is not part of any microsoft/linux agreement and has no plans ever to sign a deal with them. These rumors floating around are just that, rumors, nothing more.
sweet, I’ve just recently started playing with ubuntu, and I’ve begun to really like it. So much so that I feel out of place when using a windows box again. (when I was younger I used to really be into linux, then I started playing MMO’s and, well, yeah.)
I’ll be checking back for any more cool Linux stuff you may happen to come across.
No negotiations with Microsoft in progress:
“We have declined to discuss any agreement with Microsoft under the threat of unspecified patent infringements.”
Joe – glad to know that my post has helped you out! I feel the same way as you when I go back to a Windows box – unfamiliar. It just seems Ubuntu is so much snappier, and work actually gets done quicker ;).
