Windows A common topic of discussion in the Windows world - in fact, in any operating system - is boot performance. 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. In a post on the Engineering 7 blog, Michael Fortin, lead engineer of Microsoft's Fundamentals/Core Operating System Group, explains what Microsoft is doing to make Windows 7 boot faster.

Well XP does boot up quickly. At least on a fresh install! My ageing P4 still boots XP in less than 30 seconds with a reasonably clean installation. Faster than Ubuntu, which takes about a minute.
