Windows More news on Windows 8. This time around, Gabe Aul, a director of program management in Windows, blogged about the changes Microsoft has made to Windows 8's boot process. The results are impressive - a boot time not much slower than waking from sleep on current Windows 7 and Mac OS X machines. This is, of course, a vital component of getting Windows NT ready for tablets.

As I understand it, they save the state of all the hardware detection and services. So they seperate the initialization of the hardware in 2 parts ? Instead of searching for hardware, they just initialize it ?
