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.

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.

Windows has always been pretty fast at booting unless you let every application start at boot.

Anyway do people still reboot, I put my PC in hibernate, probably don't reboot for months. Give me a shout when that works in linux flawlessly.

Why can't Linux users keep their mouths shut about their choice of OS?
