Get Connected to the Internet Quickly with Instant-On Operating Systems
Instant Online With LinuxFrom a cold start, it can easily be five minutes or more before Windows loads, you've logged in and have network connectivity, and the system has settled down enough for you to start using it. That's a long time to wait in any scenario, but when you have a limited window of opportunity to get online, the delay can seem excruciating.
Of course, you can knock down Windows start up time considerably by using either hibernate or standby mode, but the former can still take a minute or more to produce a connected, usable system, and the latter, while quicker, will drain your battery (albeit slowly) even when your notebook's not in use.
