Quickstart for Vista

The testing guidelines for Quickstarter explain that this service will not be available for Windows Vista. I'm curious as to why that is -- does Vista already demonstrate enhanced prefetching techniques that make Quickstarter unnecessary? Or is Quickstarter being omitted because because of limited engineering resources?

Just want to know if we can expect a Quickstarter in Vista in the future.

Windows Vista includes advanced prefetching support (SuperFetch). Java Quick Starter exhibits only limited improvement in cold startup time on Windows Vista, as compared to Windows XP. Therefore, we have decided to enable JQS for Windows 2K/XP by default, but disable it for Windows Vista. The JQS service can be re-enabled through the Java Control Panel, if desired.
