^^ I think the same.
I guess ROM-based operating systems like Atari TOS did have an advantage here.
They had instant access to their libraries of code, without needing fixed disk drives.
In fact, they still have that advantage.
They never had to fight over disk i/o with the applications.
Operating systems like Windows will always be behind in this specific point, I think,
unless they are being run on a RAM drive.
Speaking of RAM drives/disks, Linux has the ability to run in such an environment (TO RAM argument).
However, if we're a little bit sarcastic, we could say that it requires that option somewhat badly also.
It handles everything through the file system, after all (everything's a file). 😉
