It only costs an extra couple bucks a month, and I have the convenience of not having to wait through boot cycles, not forcing my hardware through heating-cooling cycles (expansion-contraction -- now it's just hot all the time), using the computer whenever I want -- or need -- to use it, etc. But I have computers to use them, not to "watch" them boot and load operating systems.
Maybe that's why I haven't seen the light yet about what's on the screen however many seconds GRUB takes to start loading or what I see while hotplug's little routine guesses what I've inserted into my USB ports this time (woohoo, spinning \-/-\-/-\s!).
