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.

Have a think about it. Apple are in control of the entire process, but on the windows side there are elements from different companies so there will obviously be differences.

That's perfectly true, but honestly I don't care much WHY it is this way. It IS this way, and it sucks. I work at IT, so yes I bought a lot of Windows laptops. I just hate that I need to custom reinstall every Windows laptop I buy, while all the Macs I buy just work out of the box and just need a little configuration for our network environment. This truly sucks and is just one more reason for me to prefer Macs over PCs.
