Wait, how can you install RW on a flash drive?

so better memory management, faster application, or that's what the boffins at work tell me anyway.
Memory management doesn't get better by changing the application from 32bit to 64bit, it does allow for direct addressing of more memory. In fact most applications will actually use more memory going to 64bit (pointers double in size). Some operations will get faster moving to 64bit, like math ops using 64bit registers instead of 32bit, which RW will have few of. If RW is crashing you are running into a bug,

Yeah, I have what I feel is a pretty quick computer with 16 gigs of RAM. But swapping tabs can take up to 10-20 seconds. Which is insane to me that it would do that.

Some of those tabs have very little data outside of the pre-made data fields. I keep hoping one of these Realm Work updates would speed up the database.

They meant having an SSD (so flash storage) as your user profile drive (normally the same as your boot drive) because Realm Works stores your database there. It shouldn't matter that much where you put the application; if you have even a smidgeon of free memory the entire application will be in the disk cache.

Gotcha. I've got it installed on both my computers, and they both have SSDs. The laptop is notably slower than my desktop though...

+1 for this. Would be a great improvement.

+1 for this - improving the loading time of a tab is a must-have!
