My system loads in 10 seconds and I don't feel that's all that bad. Not really sure how I feel about Windows 8 being that it's primarily designed for touch screen interfaces.

For the most part Macs are fast because they never really turn off, just a form of sleep mode or hibernation.

According to Microsoft Windows 8 will run better then XP, under 50mb of ram on fresh install etc. If this is true Windows 8 will be a big hit for people with older machines, since 7 is still heavy.

I liked 98 se, the only reason I moved to XP was my old PC died and I had not yet progressed to the point where I could build my own, I moved to Win7 just to get DX11 support
