No shit, man. That really sucks rocks! My 550 mhz PIII (!) boot's up WinXP in one minute. What I do is use a program to control what is loaded at startup time (can't remember the name of the program, though). And I use Kubuntu for going online, this way the WinXp install stays clean (no spy/ad/mall/crap ware). Of course this also means I don't need any software which scans for all the crap your system can get filled up with, which may save time. Does say a lot about how 'good' micro soft wants it's products to be, very sad indeed.
