Dear Operating System Designers

I don’t care if things run slow.  I can wait 5, 10, 15 more minutes for something to encode.

I want my user interface to be fast.

I want my windows to move around fast, and I want to switch programs quickly.  When I click on menus, I don’t want to wait for disk access to do basic menus.

Biggest offender:  Windows XP Start menu — why the hell do you hit my disk when I click start->all programs?  It would take so little to cache that.
