One of the few “Valid” reasons for one to converts from Windows to Mac is “It takes so long to boot! DAMN IT! IT’S FRUSTRATING!!” and stuff.
Even though you most likely need to sit down, grab a cup of coffee and manually tweak everything to get that frustration out.
Well, Soluto saves you MOST of that headache. It analyses your computer and recommends actions based on users action they took.
Soluto – Anti Frustration Software from Soluto on Vimeo.
* Analyze startup programs and services (You can pause, delay or run… Your choice).
* Analyze browsers and and running plug-ins whether you want to disable them or not.
* Analyze crashed programs and see if there’s a solution submitted by users or not.
* Graph to show your boot-time performance so you can personally track where did things go wrong.
* The ability to participate with descriptions (Of programs, plug-ins and crash solutions).
I personally tried it and, well, it dropped my boot time from 3:57 minutes to 1:39! That’s even a tad less than half the time! (Noting that time count starts when the program starts. Which is a little after you log in with your username\password)
Give it a spin, you’ll love it!

/off-topic: What happened here? seems kinda barren…
/On-topic: LOL who would wanna be a Macfag? Also, Windblows will always be slow. Now that Steve blow jobs is outta of the picture, Apple is fucked. All of you should submit to the glorious Linux Empire.
… or you can just run linux.
*You can manage startup applications and daemons (starting/pausing/stopping them)
*You can manage browser plugins (enabling/disabling them)
*You can check for online solutions (and if wish not to use a browser, you can use unity with AskUbuntu lenses)
*You can monitor your boot and graph it (using bootchart or any similar application)
*You can share your bugs on launchpad easily with preinstalled bug report tools. Also, participate with your descriptions.
My personal computer is an old Pentium 4 PC w/ ~2GB ram running Debian squeeze and boots in less than 90 seconds. And my Pentium II PC used to boot in less than 100 seconds when I had Arch Linux installed!
… this is a solution for those who don’t know how to control their systems, those who are using systems that restrict user control, or those who are lazy. Meh.
Fencer darkwind, klinux (which what you use to wipe whatever you blow 😉 … Just saying) doesn’t run games without wine/mono hacks, does it?
Anxious Nut, yes, I’ll ditch all my softwares that my work uses and the guarantees I’d get from vendors and switch to klinux, customize every single thing of my own shit (instead of having a preset settings that works good, but we screw uo by time) and ask’n’wait for decades to get a valid answer for a problem…
Linux is great, but switching from a whole OS to another just to save a minute or two of boot time isn’t a valid answer.
lulz, reading your comment made me feel sorry for you!
You don’t have to ditch anything.
All applications have equivalent applications! Whatever you’re using, there exist at least one application that does the same job on linux. I’ve been using Linux as my main OS since late 2006 and I have only needed to use windows once for VB.net programming in highschool!
If you’re not familiar with linux, of course you will face problems if you’re trying to run Arch or Debian, but you don’t have to use those! You can use Ubuntu or Linux Mint – both of these have almost everything running out of the box and requires no configurations when installed! Heck, they run more out of the box than windows does! As for waiting for an answer, you can always read the manuals and fix your problem yourself. However, if you’re too lazy or prefer “guarantees you’d get from vendors”, you can purchase personal support from a linux solutions cooperation like Canonical/Ubuntu and they’d take care of everything – the way you like it, grantees, right?
Linux saves years in comparison with windows! If you think this is anything other than true, then can you tell me why all big international corporations including Google, IBM, Wikipedia/media, and HTC run Linux systems not only for servers, but for development as well?
All I can say to a person who obviously has no real experience with linux is: try linux before speaking and by trying I mean using it for a period not less than two weeks as a main OS – for work and regular use, that is.
@Insufficient Sanity: Enjoy your viruses and having to restart every time you do something. By the way, Wine is not a hack. Its reverse engineering. There’s a difference. Also, Synaptic Package Manager blows away everything Windows has to offer.
