No, you have to be at 10, the highest quality to avoid watermarking. Setting quality to 9 (and presumably lower, but that's not indicated in the post) enables watermarking. What's important is what the default is, which I haven't seen mentioned anywhere.

Comment Re:Comparing total memory usage is stupid (Score 1) 258 258

If all you're running is one application, then you don't need a desktop. If you're multitasking, then of course you want your desktop to be fast, it should be up there in priority at all times. So caching stuff for the desktop is a good idea. Besides, it takes way longer to load stuff from the hard drive than to free some memory so an application can allocate some for its own use.
