So what's the point of switching? Boot-up is a second or two faster?

No, bootup is minutes faster on some systems. Shutdown is similarly improved. My Lenovo laptop with hard drive acts like it is an "instant on" flash drive pc.

If you got a PC that takes minutes to boot up, you got other problems.  And a computer from the 20th century.   Of course, just enabling hibernation mode and using it would get you the same gain.

My machine spends as much time in POST as it does booting up.  A couple more seconds isn't going to change my life one bit.  (I'd get a lot more from a motherboard change then an OS change)
