Its got an incredibly fast boot up time (even on a 7200rpm HDD) however it crashed on two occasions for me. One was while I was screwing around trying to put Mint on my PC, and the other immediately after Trying to install the Java JDK. The linux I can understand windows being Jealous about, but why does windows hate Java? Anyway, each time that it crashed it powered down then back up and took me to the bios screen for several seconds. Afterwards it was "configuring system updates" quite strange.
