That isn't quite true, when you make changes in the web interface, it 
takes substantially longer for m0n0wall to complete the change if you 
boot from a floppy, whereas m0n0wall is pretty snappy using a hard drive 
unless the drive is spun down.

It's not normally a big deal, but when you need to update dozens of 
rules it can be frustrating waiting.
