The built-in XP defrag utility is actually written by a third party (Executive Software International) and is quite good.

It should be as effective as the PCMESH item in my opinion, with the added advantage that its free and already part of XP

Microsoft's source code is proprietary and closed - no-one except those working at Microsoft can view it (with the exception of the few governments Microsoft is showing their code to). So, while it may make it harder for manufacterers to make effective or better applications than Microsofts ones, it still is possible...

?????

there are plenty of programs which are far better than the MS ones. you do not need to know the MS source to make programs that will run on windows. only thing you need is time and money!
