    Ok, what's that? This is a geek site so you should've wrote it as: Boot != Resume from standby! :p

    Even my old Samsung E600 takes a good 15 seconds to boot from a fully off state, anything that can speed that up is a good thing.

    so, no special hardware right?, just new software that knows which part of a so called hibernation file should be loaded first?, if that's the case it wont be hard to port to a windows or osx (especially osx since its internally unix)

    Not really. There's a reason why Linux doesn't receive ports of most programs, despite being similar to OS X.

    It's good to see this sort of innovation coming out of Microsoft.
    Microsoft is a monopolist and has always got consumers' interests at heart.
    Time and time they've always shown their ability to innovate.
    This just adds to their long list of innovations such as Tabbed browsing, the iPod, multipoint touchscreen, JavaScript browser engines, etc

    I'm pleased to see that they have - in no way - rested on the ability to manipulate markets at the expense of consumers and show a continued determination to innovate.

    This latest technology is proof positive that monopolies are good for the consumer as they continue to produce quality software like Windows Vista and the 'armour-plated' Windows XP. Congratulations Redmond on another piece of fine technology. Your ability to take us in new directions always surprises me and is a testement to why you continue to enjoy 90% of the desktop operating system market. It's a shame you can't do the same in the Server space - but don't listento those sysadmins, they don't know anything about what makes a good operating system.

    It's good to see this sort of spew coming out of haters.
    They are monopolist and have always not got consumers' interests at heart.
    Time and time they've always shown their ability to speculate lousily.
    This just adds to their long list of over-hypes such as Tabbed browsing, the iPod, multipoint touchscreen, JavaScript browser engines, etc

    I'm pleased to see that they have - in no way - rested on the ability to manipulate markets at the expense of consumers and show a continued determination to spew crap.

    This latest spew is proof positive that haters are good for the consumer as they continue to attack quality software like Windows Vista and the 'armour-plated' Windows XP. Congratulations Shagbag on another piece of fine literature. Your ability to take us in new directions always surprises me and is a testement (sic) to why you continue to miss the point of enjoying 90% of the desktop operating system market. It's a shame you can't do the same in the Server space - but don't listento (sic) those sysadmins, they don't know anything about what makes a good argument.
