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 used the one that starts in less time, and then an indication (rounded) of times in relation to it. It is not intended to draw conclusions, because my poor machine is very loaded with programs, but yes, all are measured in equal conditions.

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

Surely there are specific details that will justify the delay of some, but I leave it to their free will. ArcGIS and TatukGIS are left out that I would have liked to include, but they are not installed.
