That's the opposite of my experience actually.
Even after going into the user controls and removing the mandatory login, etc., the off-to-usable time on Windows 7 is about 10% less.
Weird, I boot in less than 20 seconds. It was taking almost 1 minute and 20 seconds under Windows 7. Honestly, it just isn't that important to me though.
