Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Well a littler faster boot up time is always nicer.

I myself wish even my Windows 7 would boot up as fast as my Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 3.4 would.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

Nice speed, horrible multitask handling... I hope W9 includes this level of speed with the way Windows 7 handles multitask...

Thanks for the info Brink

Why did they bother to improve transcoding performance, when they want you to use the useless Apps instead of real programs?

The difference in boot times is negligible.
BTW, similar to what I observed on my PC (6 - 9 seconds quicker).

Thanks for the link, Brink.
