Sounds like a neat idea. But, what programs are you able to run while booting Windows XP from the RAM disk? Any Microsoft Word? Is there any Internet Connection?

Yeah I'm interested into how well programs run from the RAM disk if at all :/

I'd say they'll run fast in the 1st place. Some time ago, I was running Windows 98 and Office 97 completely in RAM (this was on a 1024MB box w/a 600MB RAM disk) and although the boot-up was taking quite a long time, this thing was incredibly fast once booted. Programs opened instantly, for example.

That much extensive use of ram would probably fry my motherboard...
