Microsoft today demonstrated Windows 8 booting up in a mind-boggling 8 seconds!

The extremely fast boot up time is a great indication of overall system performance with the upcoming version of Windows, the most widely used operating system on the planet. The key difference here between Windows 7 and Windows 8 is that the kernel session is now placed into hibernate mode instead of being closed down, even if the user shuts down the computer.
