Another feature of the upcoming operating system from Microsoft, codenamed “Windows 8”, has been revealed on the Building Windows 8 engineering team blog and as you might have guessed by the title this is all about boot speed.
Now I have been running Solid State Drives, SSD’s, on two of my Windows 7 systems for some time now. How To- Use an SSD Drive as Main Drive for Windows 7 and Upgrading to a Solid State Drive (SSD) on my ASUS Eee PC 1000HE talk about those experiences. As you will read the faster boot times with these SSD’s are quite amazing compared to a spinning platter hard drive.
Well the Windows Engineering team knows that boot times are a significant point of frustration and concern for Windows users especially in this instant on world we live in today.
Well last night Steven Sinofsky, President of the Windows and Windows Live Division at Microsoft, introduced a very detailed post from Gabe Aul, that shows the significant improvements the team is making to the boot up process for Windows.
Take a look at this demo video to see for yourself:
It is expected that many more details about “Windows 8” will be revealed at the Microsoft BUILD Conference which is being held in Anaheim, California.
