I haven't timed it (yet), but Windows 7 just seems to take longer to boot than Windows Vista. I thought it was just me, until I checked with a few other Windows 7 users and confirmed this is the experience others have. What has been your experience in booting Windows 7?
Since Linux booted about a minute faster than Windows Vista, I wonder what the Linux advantage is compared to Windows 7? I'll probably do a boot comparison this weekend.
To remind everyone: Linux (Fedora 12) takes about 1 minute 7 seconds to boot from a USB thumb drive, login, launch Firefox, and display a web page (Google). Vista took 2 minutes 4 seconds on the same laptop, but from the internal hard drive.
