    Interesting that fast booting should become a major issue. I know that
    booting Windows machines is one of those nightmares which just seems to
    get worse all the time. I avoid using Windows machines, now, so I
    rarely find out, and a colleague of mine just gave up on his because of
    something called "safeboot" which he said took the boot time to well
    over 15 minutes, and even then, there'll be another 10-15 for doing all
    the logins and network connections. And then, if it crashes... So he's
    given up with it.

    Come on Gordon, google one up. A real up front lie as opposed to a bit
    of leg pulling. Like Tim and Erik, DFS is generally honest but
    sometimes, like myself, ends up spiralling a little in the face of a
    COLA attack. These COLA "advocates" like Omer, Mark Kent etc are out of
    touch with reality. In their small world they DO think MS is "evil" and
    that Linux is taking over. It is ludicrous to say the least. And you
    know it.

    You'll need to do better than that. That wasn't a lie. Doofus actually
    believes it. Stupidity is for life. Sad isn't it? :-)
