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.

QUOTE: "Your computer should boot in 5 seconds, sure if all ou boot is dos. Fact When your computer boots in either windows or Linux, or Mac OS X it needs to load up a gig of crap nowadays. "

How expensive is 1 GIG of fast Compact Flash Memory today?

Store and Load the OS on a CF card. And boot time would be A LOT faster..

The sat story is that we still store the OS on slow memory like a HardDrive..
