Oh man my pc loads in seconds... freaky. :shock:

I said believe in God. If I'd have thought about Linux I'd have said believe in the devil!

InstantOn uses linux and special mainboards for almost instantaneous browsing.
xPUD, boots in under 10 seconds to Firefox, under 5 seconds on some netbooks. (Poor XP)
Ubuntu on my 4 year old laptop gets me from OS selection screen (grub) to a login in under 35s and after that to a firefox in about 5s....
