Microsoft promises faster startup for Windows 8

A hybrid hibernation technology lops 30 percent to 70 percent off Windows 8 startup time, says Microsoft, trying to fix an ages-old problem.

I hear the 8 should be a lot smaller when loaded. Meaning it's not going to use as much RAM as 7. The smaller they can make it the quicker it should go.

Maybe its just me, but I would prefer to focus on things other than start up.  Sure its cool that it could boot up in two seconds flats, but for me personally it doesn't matter.  I hit the power button on the computer and then turn the TV on, by the time I get over to ESPN HD, my computer is fully booted.

Although if arwendt is correct, less memory usage would be rather nice.
