Whether it's XP or Win7, there has been lots of tips and tweaks to improve the boot time of Microsoft's OS. But still there has been no specific solution for the boot time. Finally, Windows 8 won't be having this problem. Because the dead machine can go live in just 8 seconds. Yeah, you read that right. In just 8 seconds!!!

A new video demonstration posted by Microsoft on YouTube shows that the Windows 8 can load completely within 8 seconds. Normally, windows takes some time to load its system after you press the power button. In Windows 7, you’ll find two options named “Shutdown” and “Hibernate”. Hibernate will save your work to a separate file and power off your machine and Shutdown means a complete restart of driver, kernel, systems etc..

But in Windows 8 they have combined these two things. So when you press the shutdown button, all user sessions will be closed, but the kernel session will be hibernated. That means it will be a partial shutdown/hibernate and not a complete one.

According to the blog post by Microsoft main goal with Windows 8 is to effectively draw the power when switched off and create a a fresh session after boot with faster boot up. The boot time is obviously faster, and it was due to partial hibernation. instead of a full hibernate, which includes a lot of memory pages in use by apps, session's & hibernation data is much smaller, which takes substantially less time to write to disk. Watch the video below to see Windows 8 boot live.

It been also claimed by Microsoft that Windows 8 can boot faster than MacBook's OS X Lion. Microsoft is expected to roll out more intro about the Windows 8 operating system at the Microsoft’s Build conference next week, where the tech giant is also poised to introduce an unannounced Samsung tablet,which is an Intel-powered slim tablet.

Microsift is creating a lot of hype around windows 8,hope it is not a disappointment like Windows vista,yes 8 seconds is fast even compared to the Hibernate feature in XP,vista and windows 7,lets see how fast it is in a working environment.

Smartphone Mobile took more than 8 secs to boot.... I doubt about this .....
one thing is there , if they have removed new hardware chk process during bootup and also did some services startup after the desktop comes alive, then they may fake users as if windows booted in less time than actual bootup time.

Hibernation takes good time too, since it loads up the kernal and sessions(here only kernal).
I have used Win 8, and this thing doesnt hold good. Also, if they are making it a Partial Shutdown everytime, it will for sure create complications later and there will be crashes and errors in future.
A shutdown and Restart is as essential to a PC as Eating and sleeping to a human !

Well, mystic bro. Ofcourse I am talking about Windows Based...
Linus based servers can work 24x7, because...thy are Linux based.
Windows based ones can work 24x7 too, I have highest record of 11 days...but that affects performance for sure...
That is why people prefer Linux based hosting :)
