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.

hmm, wonder if will it be enough to "hiberboot" when going trough the tedious endless chain of reboots during windows update process.. :p

Doesn't look like new technology to me... more like: logoff && pm-hibernate

Still think this would work better on linux and mac than on windows, since windows is an os that needs to be ¤restarted¤ pretty often in comparison to its competition. (not even including the horrible windows update in the math..)

I believe its a good idea though ;)
