Microsoft InstantOn

It seems like Microsoft isn't willing to be left behind when it comes to Instant-On.

Some users have been surveyed regarding what features they would expect from an "InstantOn" environment booting in just 8 seconds, as well as how long they would be willing to wait for it to boot.

Considering how successful  Splashtop has been, I'm not surprised to see Microsoft entering this sector - in fact, I don't know why it took them so long to realize boot times to be very important issue.

Even so, 8 seconds (in my opinion) is still too long for us to wait... sure, it's better than 30 seconds or a full minute... but keep in mind even a low end Eee PC was able to boot a full fledged OS in 5 seconds. So... when we hear something about an "instant On" device... we really expect it to be instant.
