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.

If your primary use of a computer is Facebook/Skype, then you will not get to those services within 30 seconds.

Actually I have 1 second login time on my Windows 7 desktop ... pretty simple to achieve.

Windows + R .. then type msconfig ... you can disable most unneeded startup items in there. I only run Adobe Flex, SQL Server, Skype and AV.
