Windows boots in 40 seconds, to be honest, 5 seconds is not going to

But the non-existant network connection is a bit of a problem, I think.
I noticed a spec that looks like it might have a stab at solving this: Its status is "approved. Needs
guidance. blocked". Not sure whether that means it will get implemented
