    Does Yosemite boot quicker that Mavericks? I know it is early beta, but what do you all think?

    Seemed slightly slower for me on my late '13 rmbp, but at this point it's pretty academic since it's such an early preview.

    You can't really make an assessment that's remotely useful or worth comparing until we get to / close to a GM release. Same goes for things like battery life etc, until we get close data / comparison is useless.

    No, not yet

    Left my machine running on Yosemite since installing the day it came out, seems like Yosemite is doing some housecleaning itself, the more I rebooted, the quicker it gets. But not based on science of-course.

    Isn't it all about how people measure 'user experience' with a new OS, regardless dp, beta or gm?

    Boot time for me is irrelevant because it is something I so seldom do in real life
    And when I do, the difference of a few seconds here and there is inconsequential

    Now, the overall speed of the UI, lag times, animation stuttering, scrolling issues, and such, these would be of interest and would affect the "user experience" for me

    [+1] I should have be more precise by adding ".. as part of user experience"!

    It's hard to do the benchmark here ...

    My iMac has always booted within 15 seconds, and my MacBook Pro has always taken more than 5 minutes ... :-/

    One thing you can do to help is to encrypt your HD with FileVault, which means that instead of waiting one minute to go to the login screen, it will pop up right on start. So there's no chance that you go and make a coffee and when you come back 5 minutes later you still have to login and wait another minute or two.

    I've been impressed with FileVault in Yosemite. I boot up my computer, and 1-2 seconds later I see my wallpaper, with a blur on top. It's very nice. Before that it was just a light gray screen.

    Yep, it's taking a bit longer so far.

    It was ~11sec, now it's ~18sec on MBA.

    PS. I'am talking about boot times, not reboot, obviously.

    it is maybe 2-3 seconds slower across my machines right now. That could change for the better or worse by the time GM hits.

    It's a Beta man. You can't really determine that until the Final release.

    I wanted to know if the beta boots quicker than 10.9. I knew what I was asking. I wasn't sure if Apple made boots times much faster than 10.9.
