Windows Microsft has made hard statements about perfomance improvements in Longhorn. They claim that applications will load 15% faster than in XP, while boot time is decreased by 50%. They also claimed that Longhorn will be able to wake up from sleep in 2 seconds. Users should also expect half as many reboots during patching. Time to dust of those trustworthy stopwatches.

"Next year MacOSX will run on Intel chips so the argument of hardware being half the speed won't hold up."

OK, but I hope it won't be double the price for the same specs. Next year the comparison will be even more evident.

"Also MS is interested in proliferating Windows, they are NOT interested in third world countries."

Of course so, but they fear the domino effect (it is a small planet after all ;) )
