  6. Tip of the Day Many people think that 'formatting' a hard drive will wipe out all the data so it cannot be recovered
    Not so. To prevent the possibility of future recovery, use a third-party, low-level hard drive formatting tool, such as Killdisk (downloadable at no charge from www.killdisk.com) to overwrite data on the hard drive with a random sequence of 1's and 0's.

    '
    Having used Windows 8 on one of my laptops for last couple of days, this article would be toned as an essay of what’s there and what’s not rather than just a review. So it would be lengthy and you would require patience to go through this at your own pace. The entire essay is divided in topics so you can skip those that do not interest you!' ..


    'It boots fast and takes just over 12 seconds to start, 14 seconds to shutdown which is really amazing! None of the previous Microsoft Operating Systems have started so quickly (except MS-DOS).' - Hmm .. hmm .. My Windows XP SP2 takes 20 seconds to start and 7 seconds to shutdown only .. So ..

    This may not be up to date as it is on a Windows 8 Developer Preview.

    Everyone's PC will startup and shut down at different times, All depends on hardware and what software you have in your startup list. SSD > HDD

    I didn't realise Windows XP was packed with features like Windows 8, your comparison of an out-dated (possibly lighter) Windows XP OS to Windows 8 doesn't mean anything.

    Just like Damn Small Linux vs Ubuntu 11.xx (edit).

    The 'Sleep' function is far more efficient for my use. :)

    Windows 8 made an improvements during boot up and shutdown since they proposed it compared to other older OS, as MrXidus said everything will meet from hardware specifications in order to grant its need.

    Also its very normal that a cold bootup occur since it refresh everything before all set.

    I agree with you. Windows XP packed with features is equal to Vista lol. Microsoft have made a lot of changes in Windows 8 to improve stability and speed.

    Did you mean Ubuntu 11.04 or 11.10?
