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.

"Frequent reboot"?

Maybe once a month if there is an OS level update every month.

The last time I had to reboot Windows 7 for a non-update reason was when my antivirus's web scanner got wedged and wouldn't let me load pages.

It did bluescreen maybe two months ago because of the ATI video drivers.

What frequent reboots are you expecting Windows 8 to require?
