Rocket Powered Turbo Slug

I was becoming quite annoyed with the speed, or rather lack thereof, of this new Windows Mobile 2005.It was an absolute dog, taking a couple seconds just to scroll one page in the Programs menu. I was begining to wonder if I had make a mistake, and was thinking about downgrading. Then I remembered an old tweak. Edit the registry on the PDA, changing the value of HKLM\SYSTEM\GDI\GLYPHCACHE from 8192 to 32768. This increases the amount of memory used by the Glyph cache, but since WM2005 only uses the RAM for software and not for storage, I have TONS of RAM available. Now it's nice and crispy, like it was with the original OS. Yay for secret obscure registry entries.
