Giving Up on Windows 7

For some wonderful reason, Windows 7 takes eight minutes to boot on my desktop machine. This is an Intel Core2Quad with 4GB of RAM. Not a speed demon, but no slouch. I have been in *Nix land too long and can't figure out what hardware is stalling the boot process. Horrifically frustrating.

I am not used to not being able to figure things out, but I have reached the point of not caring anymore. Windows is just a game platform for me and I get real work done in Linux or OSX.

Windows XP will play Left4Dead just fine.
