Many systems take a long time to reach a usable desktop from the moment the power switch is pressed, and this can be quite annoying if it takes too long.

If you knew HOW MUCH I AGREE WITH YOU!! Why is it that the first thing you have to do with a Windows laptop is to completely wipe the harddisk and install a plain Windows from scratch, while when you buy a new MacBook or iMac, you just boot it and start to USE it right away?
