Cool! Good thing the Spongebob universe avoided them. Who knows how that would have worked out otherwise 😛
I think part of it is that it needs to start all the drivers and things. All my systems have started off at 100% fan speed until everything is fully loaded, for example. I know there’s a bug in Windows that’s existed forever where it sometimes doesn’t initialize the Internet connection and requires a reboot. Large hosts files can definitely slow things down.
