Yeah, about 1 and a half minutes to two minutes for me.

On a fresh installation, it can only take 30 seconds, but as soon as you place more on, it rapidly increases.

My installation though has been on for about a year now I think...

You'll find rusbo.uk, thats because the MAC OS doesn't use a GUI, and so doens't take as long to load. It uses video card hardware to render.

When Longhorn comes out, those are the types of times we'll be expecting from it.

50 seconds flat. From power button to when the hour-glass pointer goes away once everything has been loaded.
