From the original poster:

Imagine a visionary like Steve Jobs (by the way, enjoy your leave of absence and please come back). He goes to his team and says "I don't care what it takes, build me a computer which boots in one second".

From http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS5429881813.html:

Yet, most BIOSes available for x86 chipsets were built for the desktop market, and thus have not been optimized in this area, according to Steve Jones, General Software CTO.

When Steve Jobs is not around, leave it to Steve Jones!

Science is to computer science as hydrodynamics is to plumbing.
