Im an architect that has always had a little bug about programming (my uncle's profession), so since i have some free time, i started learning C#. I began reading some manuals in August 2011 and started to code my first app in November 2011.

Hopefully i'll get some more app requests so i can get to learn more about coding.

@TomWijsman: Ok, I'll test it out on my own PC on the weekend. It won't be an extensive test with all the variants like in this answer, but it might add some relevant content to the answer.

comment User profile size and boot performance
@TomWijsman: I took a peek at the WPT you mentioned. I saw this site and this question and it doesn't really seem that the boot-time will be represented in a way that I could figure out what parts of the user profile are loaded. So I'm going to accept the test-runs as proof that "user profile size" per si doesn't affect boot times, but I'm willing to change that if a better answer is given. Thanks for the help though.

@TomWijsman Thanks, I didn't know those tools, I'll see if we can get a hand on a machine that can be formated to re-run the tests. But since one of the two technicians would be doing the tests (I don't have extra PC's for the job) I'm not sure they're willing, but I'll ask anyway. Thanks for the edit, I was going to get to it tonight, but looks like I got here too late.

@kreemoweet So apparently i was wrong about the user profile. The value was determined by the control panel's options to view the user profile's size.

@kreemoweet "Desktop content" regards files stored on the desktop. "User profile size" i think stands for the size of the ´C:/Users/_username_/´ folder. I'll check with the technicians just in case im a bit off on what they consider "user profile", I'll talk to them tomorrow.

The boot time we considered stands between pressing the power button and the load of the google logo on IE. IE is opened by pressing the shortcut on the taskbar as soon as it loads. No login typing is made to minimize user interaction. From what the both of you stated you have the opinion of the 1st technician?
