Kinda, you get a disscounted upgrade to Windows 8 Professional ($15).
But I don't think they started this offer yet, but rather will start next month, when the Release Canidate is availble.

Yes, they tested this, and found computers with SSDs running Windows 8 can start with-in 8 seconds. And most HDs can start usually with-in 20seconds, usually. However, there's a bit of an issue with it starting so fast. It boots so fast, you don't have enough time to access BIOS settings. Thankfully, MS is coming up with a fix, where it launches Windows 8, but if it detects a problem, it doesn't do a full boot, but goes to option screen similar to when an error occurs during a Win7 boot up (Only now, it's visible with mouse support, instead of BIOS like menus, which of course is required, or it wouldn't work on tablets) So that way, from the Win8 option screen, you can do the expected things such as choose boot device, launch repair mode, force start BIOS. You can also manually access it by holding shift while clicking 'Restart'.
Here's an article on more:
I have WIndows 8 installed as a second OS, and while I still mostly use 7 (Don't have most my files, settings, and programs ported over yet) I still have Win8 set as default OS, simply cause I love the visuall menu selection.
