Booting Your Computer: How Long Does Yours Take?

48 replies 10 views Edited Jan 4, 2007
I'm just curious. 

I'm talking about the second you turn your computer on (I turn mine off every night before I go to bed) to the very second it finishes loading everything on your desktop (folders, system trays, etc).  I just timed mine and it took 2 minutes and 15 seconds for everything to be ready.  That doesn't sound too bad but I was wondering if that's average, fast or slow?

20 seconds on Windows XP and about 10 on my Linux box. 5 seconds to get to login screen I just press enter.

From a off state to a usable state (everything is loaded) a good 30 or so seconds.
