Yeah it does, but one thing missing from that is the ability to delay certain programs for set times/seconds before starting up.

For instance, let the smaller programs load up first, and then let the bigger programs start up after with delays to give the processor some time to recover.

I think, just for fun, I'm going to really time my startup this time, and not just give out estimates . Just a moment...

Okay, it took 44 seconds to get to the desktop, and 67 seconds for everything to load up, including AIM, Outlook, Norton, Steam, Speedfan, Quicktime, and other miscellaneous applications.

The RAID startup screen takes about 10 seconds of that time getting to the desktop.

EDIT: Dang, I really made it sound like I was being definitive on those posts above... That was just an estimate, and a bad one at that. So... maybe I stretched the truth a bit, eh?
