you could defrag the hdd every couple months, that will make bootup a tiny bit faster.

Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"

whole story here:

Ok here's what I think you're talking about. Go to run and type msconfig. Then when the box comes up go to the boot.ini tab and change the timeout from 30 seconds to a value lower than that. I know I read that somewhere but I did not do it because I'm on my new laptop.
