Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

Re: Boot time (what to do with it)

Make up your mind on what you want to do with the system (office work/development) then use an embedded OS in RAM/ROM/whatever. Should start fast enough.

And BeOS starts in 18s or so.. damn you can't wait for that? I've had times where I'd switched on the PC, and by the time I realized the monitor was still switched off and switched that on, the BeOS desktop would already be up. I admit I'm not the fastest thinker in the morning, but you probably aren't either ;)

But hey, there's always something to complain about, right?
