5 MINUTES? My old laptop, with very modest CPU, is logged
on, from a cold start, in 15 seconds (including me typing
the password). That is with Ubuntu Linux. I don't know how
long it takes my desktop to boot up, I think a bit longer,
but I just leave it on all the time. I do have solid state
drives in both those machines.
