Microsoft: Windows 8 PCs Will Turn on Fast, Nearly Instant

According to leaked documentation

Microsoft's work focused on optimizing the startup of Windows PCs will continue with Windows 8. At least according to leaked information that made its way into the wild recently. Windows 7 customers are undoubtedly already well aware of the fact that the Redmond company has fine-tuned their operating system to boot and shut down as fast as possible. Obviously, the software giant needs to deliver even better startup and shut down performance with Windows 8.

Among the enhancements planed for Windows 8 are

"- multiple, small performance enhancements resulting in a large cumulative impact;

- remove, reduce, delay – e.g., Windows 7 "Trigger-Start" services;

- exploit parallelism whenever possible;

- set hard time caps on the shutdown path;

- boot layout prefetcher;

- (Win8) ReadyBoost cache persistent across boot;

- leverages Hibernate technology to cache most of the core system."
