  1. Nice thanks for the video, nice reference to Lost btw ;).

    @everyone with the whole bootscreen thing: Do you not understand having a fancy high resoultion bootscreen will INCREASE boot time? I’d rather have a simple 256 colour bootscreen (I’d even accpet less than that) and a very quick boot up.

  2. People have being fighting over a boot screen, hahahaha, man these people you see, you should see there open mouths, when they saw the old boot screen, hahahahahahah.

  3. What kind of installation times have you been seeing? On staged builds I’ve never had an install take longer than 15 minutes on modern hardware, and 20 minutes on less-than-desirable systems… I’ll install Vista anyday before XP!

  4. Around 20 minutes from emulated ISO images. Most of the time is spent post-install, where everything is being setup and configured.
