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.

Not really. I use Vista and although shutdowns and cold starts are significantly long (3 to 5 minutes in total depending on whether there is an anti-virus running or not), hibernate/resume is also pretty long (around 2 minutes, sometimes more). For me, the main interest in hibernate compared to full shutdown is that work sessions are carried through several days or weeks.
