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.

I've noticed also that Windows depends heavily on disk access speed. The proof is that as soon as you defragment the Windows system files the overall system responsiveness increases massively. This means, that while using the Windows - like opening explorer, coying files, etc - windows every time accesses its DLL-s and it likes to read them from the disk. INSANE. If you have your shell, kernel and user DLL files in 20 pieces, those pieces are grabbed together gazillion times a day and that mans slow response time. I don't understand why MS does not use its cached copies of DLLs and accesses them from the disk.
