The people over at Microsoft have been showing off a lot about Windows 8 but now they've got something else they want to show off.

The next version of Windows will have a ridiculously fast boot time and this is why:
When you put the computer into hibernation, rather than closing everything properly and starting from fresh every time you boot up. Windows 8 will instead create a "hiberfile" which carries the data of the user session and kernel session. So when you start up Windows 8 it reads the file and literally within a few seconds you're up and running.

Microsoft wanted to prove a point so they even removed the battery to show that it really works how they say. Check out the video to see how crazily fast it is.

You can head over to Microsoft's official blog and get all the detailed knowledge on it.
