I was talking to a buddy about computers the other night. He was telling me that he set aside a portion of his RAM on his computer and has it dedicated to temporary files. Instead of writing to the hard drive, temporary files, suchs software install files and temporary internet files, are written on the RAM partition. He said this helps with the speed of file installation and things of that sort. Anybody got more insight on this? Is this a good or bad thing to do? Any other reasons for doing so?
