Yes, I understand it reads a whole lot faster than it writes. Some
complained of very long install times under Windows -- four hours for XP
in one case -- but really fast after that.

I was thinking in terms of boot time, access to Firefox, OO.org, and
reduced power consumption -- i.e., longer battery life. As it is, I'll
be forced to hold off another month.
