    Phoronix: MeeGo 1.2 Boots Nearly Twice As Fast As Fedora, Ubuntu

    Prior to being spun into MeeGo, Intel's Moblin Linux distribution was one of the fastest-booting Linux distributions. Moblin worked phenomenally for Intel Atom netbooks with a great user-interface and was very quick at starting up.

                    I guess netbook users would be more likely to shut down a device when not in use, or when travelling, although they might use sleep as well. The boot time is useless for desktop users but that's not really the target...
