comment 16GB RAM. Is it OK to turn off virtual memory?
If data in your RAM is degrading, your entire machine will be unstable, and you need new RAM. In normal use, RAM should be as reliable or more reliable than a hard disk. (I've had more HDD failures than RAM failures personally).

In Netlimiter 3, they removed some features. Unfortunately Netlimiter 2 is not compatible with Windows 7 :(

comment Driver for writing to UDF partitions from Windows XP?
@Fake: blame MS for that one...they actively prevent others from interoperating with their filesystems. (eg patents on FAT, lack of documentation on NTFS)

@Fake: NTFS is read-only on mac unless you install a separate driver, dunno if this has changed in recent versions of their OS.

Mouse Switcher no longer exists. Mouse Speed Switcher seems to be manual...I wonder if there is anything automatic?

Looks like there's nothing better than VNC...all the answers seem to be crappy web based ones.

comment Remote Desktop for OS X that's better than VNC?
How's the performance compare to VNC or RDP? I find VNC to be fairly laggy, as compared to RDP (or NX on linux, but I assume you haven't used that, it's not very common).

comment Driver for writing to UDF partitions from Windows XP?
Not a fan of it. File system formats should be open, free for anyone to use, not a closed standard that you have to pay MS in order to access your own data. They're just trying to push it to lock people into their platform, and failing that, extract money out of their competitors in order to have the privilege of letting users read their own data.
