I must seriously be one of the only people that didnt have major issues with Vista. I got Vista Eternity a year after Vista was launched, and had zero problems until about a year and a half ago when I couldnt upgrade to SP2, and finally just installed Windows 7.

Id rather boot my computer in DOS mode then vista.

If you dont know what DOS mode is then you have a good childhood

DOS was awesome... I still remember when a Windows (2000, I think?) came out that didnt have a DOS section, and I was like... What... Was quite some time until I found out about the command line. WC2, the first Command and Conquer (back when the series wasnt bat shit crazy BS) the Dooms... DOS basically defined my childhood, lol.

Disregard modern operating systems; acquire DOS.

I love you.

2 second wakes and 10 second cold boots should be a good enough selling point. Especially since I am getting that on a laptop with a dual core...

My desktop (3570K, boot from a Kingston 3K SSD) boots to desktop in under 15 seconds. Windows 7!

And my laptop is a dual core at 1.7ghz, lol. Windows 8 is amazingly fast to boot and wake. It is basically just an instant wake, and the quick second or two for the screen to receive input.
