Apple also did that with the G5 processor. How is it the first 64 bit processor when UltraSparc was available before it? Why were certain things turned off in the Xeon's and why did apple get a speed optimized malloc library?
Testing involves optimizations...often it will be a copy of windows specially made for the test and a generic redhat...so maybe the boot is slower if you dont turn off ten unnecessary daemon processes!
