Windows 8 boots 30-70% Faster.

Windows 8 has been slowly surfacing more and more recently. Yesterday in the MSDN Blogs a Microsoft Employee wrote about the extremely fast boot times we will see in Windows 8. Basically its quick boot time comes down to hibernating the system’s initialization (drivers and services), so then when its time to boot they are already loaded. If you head over to the MSDN Blog you can read in more specific detail on how they have achieved this and even why. Watching the example video almost gives me the impression that POST is taking longer than Windows. -Greg
