Your original reply to me was a bit ESL, perhaps because of your shortcut, but I did my best to respond.  So, if you want to be bothered to put in the effort to form a complete reply and have a real discussion about something in particular that I said then feel free.   In the US, if someone is about to shoot themselves, the police will intervene-- they are allowed to do that.  Are you seriously arguing that they won't try to stop you?   Again, what are you afraid of?

  WTF does Obama have to do with this?  Are you one of THOSE people?
Most resources stored compressed on disk are actually decompressed when read by the application that uses them, and then kept in memory that way. For instance, graphics like JPEGs become Bitmaps. This allows a JPEG to be rendered quickly each time it needs to be drawn without having to be decompressed more than once. There's a big performance advantage, but at the cost of some RAM. This kind of thing happens all the time with graphics resources applications use to not...
Second foray of the day!
