Was the 10x measured against an ancient harddrive or against an SSD?
@Powerjohn >>Was the 10x measured against an ancient harddrive or against an SSD? To be honest, 10x is a subjective assessment, I don't have hard numbers to support that. But GUI is such a thing where you obviously `feel` the performance difference. And yup, I'm not talking about any ancient hardware, but a 2011 Toshiba Make Laptop!
I didn't perceive any noticeable change. I think Linux's disk cache does a pretty good job. If you are using Linux with ram to spare, most of the jdk will probably be cached automatically.
