    Will this help Firefox to startup faster and be more performing on the web too?

    "In summary, Memory compression allows Windows 10 to make better use of available memory on all systems by reducing physical memory utilization, resulting in fewer pagefile IO operations and a reduced reliance on disk. Furthermore, it improves the speed of writing to and reading from disk when MM determines paging must be enacted. In sum, we expect users to experience improved overall responsiveness and usability on all devices running Windows 10."

    The universal "no free lunch" principal implies that there must be a trade-off here. I'm assuming that memory compression is going to add to CPU load ( ? ) Also I would think that the benefit of memory compression would be seen mostly on systems with less installed ram.

    Now that this feature is available in the latest insider build I'm looking forward to third party reviews.

    Each store manages fragmentation by compacting itself when necessary to ensure a good compression ratio. In practice, compressed memory takes up about 40% of the uncompressed size, and as a result on a typical device running a typical workload, Windows 10 writes pages out to disk only 50% as often as previous versions of the OS did. This will reduce the amount of time spent waiting for IO on all devices, but it will also improve the expected lifespan of systems featuring flash-based hard drives.
    Isn't the average lifespan of flash based hard drives already something like 87 years?

    Can we safely assume that if one has a lot of RAM (16GB or more) that this memory compression really isn't going to mean much to them?

    I find their statement a bit ambiguous since it doesn't explicitly mention Windows 10 Preview.
    They've introduced it to Windows 10, what else could it be except for Windows 10 or Windows 10 Preview?

    Memory Manager Improvements:

    In Windows 10, we have added a new concept in the Memory Manager called a compression store, which is an in-memory collection of compressed pages...
