vista 64bit can do vm as well

After I heard that Vista 64bit has problems with running VMware Server I knew that I'll wipe my Ubuntu install one day and ..... there you go :-)

ubuntu quad core vs arch atom eeepc - boot and shutdown times

I've done a small test because since I've changed the OS on my laptop to Arch I was wondering how does the boot time of both computers compare.

PC is running Ubuntu Linux 9.04 x86_64 on Intel QuadCore Q6700 @ 2.66GHz , 8GB of RAM and two 7200 Seagate NS 500GB drives in RAID0 (yes , I've got backup :-)), MoBo is ASUS P5Q-PRO.

Laptop is Arch Linux 2009.02 i686 on Asus eeepc 1000h - standard with upgraded RAM to 2GB.

Boot time is measured (in seconds) from the moment of pressing the Enter key on the GRUB menu item to the moment when there is useful desktop with loaded icons (Gnome) and mouse pointer ready for action.

eeepc - 47,52 sec

desktop - 41,24 sec - WINNER

Shutdown time is measured (in seconds) from the moment of executing halt command to the moment when the computer is completely switched off.

eeepc - 16,23 sec - WINNER

desktop - 28,94 sec
