    Whats your Windows 7 boot time?

    Mines 1 minute and 17 seconds fully loaded with an internet connection.

    Must say, I have never really timed mine, but it is heaps faster than XP was on the same machine.

    Haven't timed mine, but I did make mention of it in a post on here some time ago. Yep, it's blinkin' fast compared to Vista (what isn't?) and is quite a bit faster than XP too.

    I think my old Vista was quicker to load, but Win7 seems ready to roll once it's loaded, vista, like XP seemed to need a while to finish the housekeeping before being ready to go.

    *looks about for some spare SSD's*
    Sorry, HOW long did you say it took?

    But really, overall boot times are going to be hardware dependant.
    Win7 certainly appears to boot faster to a ready and usable state, as it's performance scaling continues to load background processes without much of a hit on the system; especially on a fresh install.

    This is interesting. I am still way back with XP, and wondered what W7 is like and if I should upgrade. Sounds like positive vibes from here!

    yeah. I really like Win 7. I skipped Vista, and went direct from XP to Win 7, I am very impressed with it.
