Boot faster with Windows ME
Microsoft will be introducing a new function called 'Fast Boot' in the Windows Me (Millennium Edition) operating system that will soon be released. With this function, which has now been officially presented, it should be possible, with the appropriate hardware, to start the computer in less than 30 seconds.
Dell will be the first OEM partner to use this new function, which, however, initially looks like a combination of simple better hardware (faster hard drive) and a few small tweaks work.
BTW: How fast does your system boot? For my part, I'm already below the 30 second mark.
