    Phoronix: Intel Still Working On "Fastboot" Linux Graphics

    While there's been many Linux-related projects using the "Fastboot" coin, the Intel Linux graphics team have been working on Fastboot support in terms of a faster start process by eliminating some useless mode-sets...

    Maybe I'll land it one day... Daniel moves too fast for me. Either that or I'm slow at this stuff. No wait, it's both.

    What kind of improvement are we talking about? Is fastboot just about boot times?

    Sounds like their trying to reduce the initialization time for their drivers.... which initialize in about 1/1000 of a second anyway.
