Your windows 8 video was 8 seconds while your phone video was 20. That's what gave me the impression of speed!

I think they play different roles. One role is to appear fast, the other is to appear slow. I always thought it was a subtle way to tell the user that they have a PC that isn't "fast enough" and should upgrade, or a developer to make a better app.

Doesn't matter whether or not it looks fast. Some douche at Microsoft thought it fit better with the Windows 8 "experience" so they went with it. There's no science behind it.

I tend to ignore boot animations on the whole but the boot animation used for CyanogenMod would look awesome on a PC. The boot animation for Windows 8 is really boring but as I own an SSD boot animations don't bother me too much.

I don't feel that way at all, maybe because I've been stuck looking at too many loading screens that had zippy animations but took forever.

I almost never see that animation, even in apps. Somehow, the post RTM/pre GA app updates have sped them up to the point that the UI fully loads before the splash screen starts showing the dots. As far as the boot screen goes, I'm not too bothered by the 10 seconds of spinning dots that I see every month or so.
