Whoa. Very nice.

EDIT: Just out of curiosity, what OS doesn't boot faster than those 7000 falling dominoes (excluding the momentary stops)?

Interesting, even if the Windows 7 domino still had a bug and stopped at one spot :rofl:

Pretty stupid though to use balloons in there, I wonder who'll pick them from the ceiling later? :blink:
