has something to do with the ram and the memory

Select all the key frames
Select them all and hold ALT it moves them in a "scale" way

The dots on the motion path (the line that is created when you move the object), they represent the imbetween time. Since the spacing is even, the movement is even. But if you wanted to EASE it, like in Flash, then the dots would be space further apart towards the end of the motion path.
