I haven’t noticed long boot times in Microsoft Windows Vista, but then again, I haven’t been formally timing them either. (Great…another "to do"!) Samsung appears to have a pre-emptive strike against long Vista boot times with their ReadyDrive technology. The ReadyDrive was apparently developed specifically for Vista and as we reported last year, adds a flash memory module to a standard hard drive, which should dramatically cut down on booting. I’m more of a "Sleeper" or "Hibernator" myself, but good to know that hardware vendors are planning head for bogged down boots in Vista.
