Finally an answer to the age-old question, how long does it take to boot Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9?
About 30-35 seconds. No real surprise there. This is about the same amount of time it takes to boot Windows XP on most netbooks that have Intel Atom processors and solid state disks.
Of course, let’s see how long it takes to get a usable desktop after you’ve been using your computer for a few months and you’ve loaded it full of programs that launch when Windows starts up. Windows XP always boots pretty quickly when it’s freshly installed (unlike Windows Vista, which typically takes 2-3 times longer than XP to load).
