Microsoft: Windows 8 boots too fast for F8

PC Pro: Windows 8 boots so quickly it's impossible to access the boot menu, Microsoft has said - meaning it's had to redesign how users access setup and safe mode.

First class PR bullshit. The bootscreen works by a delay timer which you can set-up yourself in any version of Windows, which in turn means that the OS _can't_ be too fast for it, as the boot process is forced to wait for X number of milliseconds before booting through.

I'd like to see Windows beat Ubuntu's boot speed, which as of now is still faster, and surprise surprise, never had any problems or fundamental changes to the boot menu.

all you would need to do is hold a button down when the computer starts. Other OS's do this, including OSX. Microsoft PR is stupid

Honestly not switching from Windows 7. Based on my experience with Windows OS, they always release a good one following by a crap one. Remember Vista was all about visuals and game performance etc....and look how that turned out.

7 Is awesome and I don't want anything new yet at all.

yes My Main bitches will remain 7's but my side comps may get a taste of windows 8.

8 really just seems like windows 7 extended and modded to work on different cpu types and tablets.

It's an optimized Win 7 overall , hardly the new millenium or vista .

hell last time i used a beta as my main and only OS , it was for 7 .
