    Default Are you sure ?

    This is 2 years old new... Did phoronix check this is not in the kernel in a way or another ? Would be nice to have this info in the new.

    no it's not.. the whole project was meant as a performance booster for the slow acer a110 and eeepc901 ssd performance using ram as a cache on windows.

    so as the need descended and the disinterest of software houses, the software has been published as gplv2 and left as it were.

    Shouldn't we have this in silicon instead in the long run?
