If you have a huge amount of RAM and really want to power up your OS, you can set up a ramdisk and have your whole OS run in RAM. Puppy Linux does this by default, and requires only about 100 MB to fully function in RAM. And it's the fastest, most responsive OS I've ever used! JWM is also extremely lightweight which also contributes to the speed. I'm sure the same thing can be done with Ubuntu (maybe Xubuntu), or Mint, or whatever.

ironically, i was looking for fastboot in order to root my nexus-7 and came across this:

fastjar - archive tool for Java archives

fastjar -ctxu [OPTIONS] [jar-file] [manifest-file] [-C dir] files...

"fastjar" is an implementation of Sun's jar utility that comes with the JDK, written entirely in C,
and runs in a fraction of the time while being feature compatible.


fast, linux, macintosh, os x, smooth
