why does 2.9 boot so fast?

can anyone tell me what has changed that allows 2.9 to boot so quickly (or rather, why does 2.8 boot so slow) with lots of queue list entries?

yeah. I read that. What Id like to know is *why*. Many of us are putting the quality and relaiability or our networks and livelyhood in the hands of this software, and detailed explanations of system problems i think should be a minimum expectation. Such questions should never have to be posted to the General Networking forum, having already been answered by MikroTik staff.
