Microsoft’s work focused on optimizing the startup of Windows PCs will continue with Windows 8. At least according to leaked information that made its way into the wild recently. Windows 7 customers are undoubtedly already well aware of the fact that the Redmond company has fine-tuned their operating system to boot and shut down as fast as possible. Obviously, the software giant needs to deliver even better startup and shut down performance with Windows 8.
The company notes in one slide deck shared with partners that: “Windows 8 PCs turn on fast, nearly instant in some cases, and are ready to work without any long or unexpected delays. When customers want to check email, sport scores, or play media they love to reach for their PCs because they can get what they want quickly."
