CAD / GIS boot comparison

This is an exercise in the same condition, to measure the time it takes to start a program from the click of the icon until the moment it is running.

the tortoise and the Hare For comparison purposes, I have used the one that starts in less time, and then an indication (rounded) of times in relation to this. It is not intended to draw conclusions, because my poor machine is very loaded with programs, but yes, they are all measured under equal conditions.

Windows XP Professional, Intel Core 2 Duo, with 2.19 Ghz and 1 GB of RAM.

Sure there are specific details that will justify the delay of some, but I leave it to your free will. They are left out of ArcGIS and TatukGIS that I would have wanted to include, but are not installed.
