Yes this is true, if one uses one OS.
When using several, one has to reboot into other OS's, unless one uses
an emulator as VMware, one boots inside another OS...
Still, these bootings take time...
Not waiting, but using your time economicly, during these fases, makes
them seem to take less time.
But i agree this is just a psychological illusion, and no realtime
shorter boottime....but it works all the same...
