we all know how much XP's startup sucks bad. We all know how vista's startup has improved, but a far cry from today's expextations. BUT, we're all exited about how windows 7 beats our own expectations, and more.

1 second improvement? Not impressive, considering that seven is lighter than vista because it has lots of apps removed.

Doesn't look much impressive. So was the Boot Drag Race a fraud?

I timed my Windows 7, it took 17 seconds.
I have 3Gig Ram, 64-Bit edition.

My vista on the same specs took 39 seconds.
My xp on the same specs took 40 seconds.
