After reading these newgroupish forums, I have noticed that a lot of people are complaining about slow startup times. More so with MacOS 9. This seems weird to me. I have a RevA iMac with 64 meg of RAM with virtual set to 96meg. It only takes my iMac one minute and forty five seconds to startup. I know that this doesn't seem fast, but MacOS9 that I have now, starts up extremely faster than any other previous system I have had. And MacOS9 also takes up more RAM than any other system, taking 30 meg right now. Imagine what it would be with VM turned off? I was just wondering if I was the only one with faster startup time with MacOS 9.
