Does it make sense to use "preload" service in Ubuntu Maverick? I have it installed and running with no errors in /var/log/preload.log.
I don't like waiting much for applications to start when I click the icon. I'm even ok with having the boot time longer if it would make starting of frequently used apps instant. Exactly that is what I expect from the preload app.
However, I don't see it working. Starting Ubuntu and waiting until all loads (no disk activity), when I click Chromium icon, it still takes 5 seconds to show the main window and even more to stop the disk flashing. I have 3 GB ram.
Do I misunderstand the concept or is it just not working?
