|Hopefully it loads as quickly as the Cromwell BIOS. Damn that thing loads fast! The bootscreen seems to appear even before my finger has left the power button!|
I hope that's the case, and I'm pretty sure it will be. The review led me to believe (due to it listing loading time as a con) that it would be signficantly longer.
I think I'll try and contact the review author to get a clarification....

|what was that famous quote by Bill Gates about RAM again?|
As a side note, he never actually said that. It's a myth. Plus, it wasn't RAM that the quote was about. Just FYI.

Like I said in my previous post, im sure the OS will be based on some sort of cromwell spin off, given that it takes only about a second to boot Cromwell plus a config timeout (if set to 2 seconds) the boot time would be increased by 3 seconds, omg that will takes years of everyones life
I am convinced that even if the XeniumOS does add a few seconds to the boot time it is well worth the sacrifice. And I think everyone should remember that this review is of a pre-production sample with a beta XeniumOS, I am sure that when the final release comes out it will have some extra features. Best of all we can always upgrade the XeniumOS as many times as we want to keep adding new stuff.
