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 leave your computer running, don't shutdown OR hibernate. You get instant-resume and your 'session' is just as you left it.

I have to laugh and non-laptop sleep and hibernate aficionados. Overcomplicating things, much?

Brilliant! How come nobody has ever figured that out?

Are you the kind of person who leaves their car running so that they feel comfortable in it when the time to commute has come? I'm not. And I guess nobody sane would suggest that.

Nobody sane would suggest that, because it's crazy. Who said anything about comfort? You're confusing things which are not alike. We're talking about convenience and efficiency, not comfort, and we're talking about computers, not cars. These things are different therefore what's okay for one is not necessarily okay for another.

Are you the kind of person who puts oil in his computer keep it running well? I'm not, and I'm guessing nobody sane would suggest that.
