Today, we are excited to announce Quick Boot for the Android Emulator. With Quick Boot, you can launch the Android Emulator in under 6 seconds. Quick Boot works by snapshotting an emulator session so you can reload in seconds. Quick Boot was first released with Android Studio 3.0 in the canary update channel and we are excited to release the feature as a stable update today.

There's a quite a few other improvements and new features, as well.

C64: Switch it on, there it is. You can start to type in your BASIC code right away.

I even got my Amiga to start in under 10 sec. from HD. With a quite sophisticated UI and many extras.

So why does it still take 6 seconds with SSD and 10.000 times more MIPS?

Because the operating system is thousands of times more complicated?
