Vista Install Times

The excellent Linux in Exile blog keeps delivering interesting points.. I love his writing style, I really believe he d like to write that windows is better for him, but he hasn’t really done that a lot so far.. One thing that struck me in todays post was his vista installation experience..

o that’s about 1 hour to install a complete Linux system, including encryption.

And about 2.5 hours to install Windows Vista, including applications, plus another 6 hours to encrypt the data. That’s a rough total of about 8.5 hours for a complete Vista system, including encryption.

Granted, the Vista system was “usable” after those first 2.5 hours – but only barely.

Those are Painfull numbers :/
