The PC tune-up developers reveals that Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows 7, starts up much more slower than Windows Vista and it’s booting speed tends to go slower with time. This statement contradicts the statement made by Microsoft Company.
The Los Angeles maker of PC software, iola Technologies, contradict Microsoft’s claim by remarking that Windows 7 doesn’t boot faster. Corresponds to iolo tests, it boots 42% slower than its predecessor, the company also reveals the study result on a brand new machine – Windows 7 take one minute, 34 seconds whereas one minute, six seconds is taken by Windows Vista to boot up. It seems that Windows 7 boot faster but iolo measured the startup with a low load on the fully usable computer.
Microsoft stated that they have devoted significant resources to make Windows 7 boot and regain from the sleep and hibernation faster than Vista, after they got severe criticism in 2007 for Windows Vista starting slowly. Other test too resounds like iolo, that reveals that in some cases it do boot slower than its predecessor. PC World, a sister publication of Computerworld, also measured the new operating system, Windows 7, against Windows Vista and reported that it boots 10% slower than Vista in case of 32-bit version and boots 14% faster on 64-bit when compared.
The statement released by iolo also states that the booting time for new operating system tends to degrade over time like windows Vista. After many “commonly based” applications have been installed in Windows 7 box, windows 7 startup time increases to two minutes, 34 seconds which is an increase of about 64%. Over the time, it will respond much slower. And by the end of two years, the startup time for it would increase to 330%.
