I’m very sure that not many of us are really very happy with the time that the Windows Vista takes to boot. On my laptop, it takes nearly 1 min, 30 secs, when the system lets me do anything. Microsoft is well aware of that fact and to improve the boot timings in their future operating systems, they have a dedicated team that solely focuses on the startup performance.
Micheal Fortin at Microsoft says,
We are working very hard on system services. We aim to dramatically reduce them in number, as well as reduce their CPU, disk and memory demands. Our perspective on this is simple; if a service is not absolutely required, it shouldn’t be starting and a trigger should exist to handle rare conditions so that the service operates only then.
Reducing the number of system services sounds fantastic!
