On RISC OS, the disc cache *may* only be a win for people on slow
Using RISC OS on a RiscPC, with a slow internet connection, and Cache
enabled, I found that launching half a dozen stories from Google News
caused the machine to be virtually unusable for half an hour, or more.
Judging by the hard-drive activity light, Cache writes to disc on the
fly. However, if it were to postpone writing until NetSurf was quit, the
delay would occur then. Either way, inconvenient.
