Booting Your Computer: How Long Does Yours Take?

48 replies 5 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.
