How long can it take?

I started installing Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 on a brand new Dell M4400 (quad-core).
I started at 9:15am and just ended. A total 8:30min of installations, service packs, upgrades, reboots, installations, service packs, upgrades....

I am totally stunned at how cumbersome the whole process is under Windows...
I don't think I ever liked my mac this much...
