If you're loading a bunch start up programs/ services when you restart your computer or even turn it on, what would it take to load all of that stuff up instantaneously?
Could or can SSD drives even get us there? Do we need holographic storage? Faster bus speeds? What will it take?
The reason I ask this is, no matter how much I have upgraded, or how many new computers I have purchased I still feel like I'm waiting. I know you can rid the computer of all the services or start up applications but isn't the point of things getting faster to help reduce or eliminate this situation?
how fast you can do that is limited to a certain point by the operating system. from my personal experience, linux does a better job of this, as does OSX, probably because they're both UNIX-based. but really if it bothers you that much, just put your computer to sleep or make it hibernate rather than turning it off. things'll load much quicker.
