Linux "Many office workers have the same morning routine: turn on the computer, then grab coffee, catch up with coworkers, or look at paperwork while Windows boots up. Others save time, but waste energy, by keeping their machines on all the time. Now Device VM, a startup based in Silicon Valley, has a product that circumvents the everlasting boot-up. The company has recently released a tiny piece of software that, when integrated with common computer hardware, gives users the option to boot either Windows or a faster, less-complex operating system called Splashtop."

Till now, and from my Amstrad CPC times (which booted in seconds with its ROM OS and Locomotive Basic based), computers boot time has always come to worse. May be things like this help where OS complexity or lack of good design fails.
