You have got to be kidding, aside from the fact I can boot BeOS and get into NetPositive inside 25 seconds (and most of that time is the BIOS boot).

Any cleaned up Windows XP or Linux can also boot in seconds and invoke a browser.

The key work here is 'clean', once the user starts downloading stuff (notable anything that also tries to advertise) the system slows down.

The partitions will need to be locked down solid, downloads go elsewhere and the user boot into another partition to use the download material.
