It's been around for a while GNOME 3 will be available on Linux Mint 12 (release November) and probably also Shell can be installed. (It can also be installed on Linux Mint 11, but is lots of work.)
I find it an utterly useless feature. My computer already starts in less than 10 seconds (6.9 on a good day). A good BIOS & motherboard and a fast SSD will make this possible already. And don't discount the OS. Haiku OS starts within a second or three. Windows 8 won't start in 10 seconds from hibernate on a modern computer (8 GiB or more RAM) without also using a SSD. If you already have a SSD, just configure your BIOS properly will net you the same speed.

Just wondering, but have you actually seen Windows 8 do the hibernate thing on a machine similar to yours? I'm still miffled about this, and am guessing they are using a machine with a SSD.
