Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005: 2 minutes. Thats with all of my external hardware installed. But it has to load a lot of software, like the media center scheduler and things like that.
 
Windows XP Home: 30 seconds or so. With same hardware installed
 
Ubuntu 6.10: around 30 seconds, depending on how fast I can type in my password. Doesn't work with any of my external hardware.
 
Windows Vista: about 40 seconds with all of my hardware connected.

From pressng the button to finish...it loads XP in about 1:05.

Although, I blame the floppy drive, Yahoo Widgets, and the Remote Control software for slowing down the start up process. I actually, don't mind waiting that much, because my machine usually gets everything loaded up within 1 minute...so it doesn't bother me.

Does the floppy drive really affect how fast a PC loads?  I have one but very rarely use it.  I wonder if I disable it I'll see a difference.
