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.

Just did a quick Sleep/Resume. With 2 seconds to password prompt. I type in my password in 1 second. WiFi was connected at the moment I saw the desktop no more than 3.5 sec after I pressed Fn+F4 (resume)...

My computer totally blows away your computer!

It resumes from hibernate instantly as I walk towards it. It has a time dilation chip which digitally spins faster than light and is therefore able to go back in time to start resuming from hibernate the instant I think of waking it.

Also my dog is meaner then your dog and my tin foil had is pointier then your tin foil hat!

So there!

Ha! My PC is a time traveller! It came from 2006, stopped in April 2010 to get Ubuntu 10.04 and skipped another year!

PS: It also knows when I will want it to be on :-D
