Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Yup. I just build my own i7 desktop PC with a 128GB SSD. From GRUB boot menu to fully loaded and functional desktop.... 3.5 seconds. Who needs hibernate! You gotta love Linux+JWM.

I have 4 seconds in Win7.

You lightweight Window Manager doesn't seem to have any benefit over my "bloated" Windows Install.

INTERESTING.

Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity desktop also boots to fully loaded desktop in 3.5 seconds on my system. Ubuntu has always been (at least for the last few years) very fast at booting, even on a standard hard drive.

Good to know Windows is making progress though.
