| Why does nearly every modern computer – whether it runs OS X, Vista or 
| Linux – take considerably longer to boot than an ancient Amiga? 
| With a hard drive, an Amiga could go from power socket to Workbench in around 
| five seconds. 
| With a modern multicore processor and a 12-month-old installation of Windows, 
| you're lucky if your desktop is responsive before the kettle boils. 


Apple and Microsoft could only dream of such fast bootstrapping.
