Oh, I don't know... since my 7.6.1 Macs are a 7600/120 or a PowerBase 
200, both with "umpteen" extensions, and my 8.0 Mac is a G3/233 with very 
few extensions, I'd say the boot on OS 8 is _much_ faster than 7.6! 
(Never tried both on the same Mac, with the same extensions...) I'm 
finally getting "used" to OS 8, BTW... it takes a while, but I'm learning 
to appreciate a bunch of the "minor" features. Now I keep hitting 
cmd-delete on my "work" Mac and wondering why the file just sits there...
