o this is cool. Whered ya find this site?

:( found a spelling error on that site:
Both XP and OS X could use help here. For instance, though both OSes display feedback at various points durint startup, both also have intervals during startup where no feedback is displayed. Further, neither let you know how long the startup sequence will take. That is also true when launching applications- neither OS notifies you of how long an application launch will take.* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

for those of you who hate reading, I read it all for you, and got the scores.
