Windows 7 actually boots slower than Vista?

Windows 7 actually boots slower than Vista?

Contrary to popular belief it appears a software company called Iolo Technologies feels the common discussion on Windows 7 booting up faster is actually quite the reverse. Iolo Technologies sell PC Tune up software and they state that their laboratories found a brand new machine running Windows 7 took 1 minute and 34 seconds to become usable when compared against 1 minute and 6 seconds for Windows Vista.

To test this they confirmed that they did not analyse the time it took for the desktop to appear but rather the time the system took to become fully usable with "cpu cycles no longer significantly high and a true idle state achieved."

These results actually match what CNET recently found in their testing of the OS. Driverheaven has asked Microsoft for their views on the matter and we are awaiting an official response later today.

Unfortunately Iolo have yet to detail how the testing took place and their exact methodology so it is hard for us to confirm or deny the findings. I will say that in our own internal testing that Windows 7 is certainly snappy enough but we have yet to thoroughly analyse the situation.
