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.

RE[4]: They always promise this

Microsoft makes bad systems software. At engineering, they fail.

Cheap shot and unsubstantiated claim. Such a cheap shot and yet you don't give an example. I have one counter-example: Microsoft's SndVol.exe vs Linux sound system. And yes, a second one: video driver crash on Vista and video driver crash in X. I know which boat I'd rather be in.
