openSUSE 12.1 Boot Performance
While yesterday I put out openSUSE 12.1 benchmarks for those interested in the performance of this updated Linux distribution, questions have arose about the boot performance, in particular due to openSUSE moving towards systemd and making other advancements.
For those interested in the Bootchart results, I only have results from one system (the same notebook as the benchmarks were delivered from yesterday) comparing openSUSE 11.4 to openSUSE 12.1. Both 64-bit openSUSE releases were booted in their stock configuration.
openSUSE 11.4 on the Linux 2.6.37 kernel booted in 44.25 seconds while the openSUSE 12.1 boot time came in 44.11 seconds, so at least for this Intel Core i7 notebook with an SSD, there's no real difference in boot speed.
When I am back from Europe next month I can see about doing a larger boot comparison, similar as I had done for Ubuntu in illustrating their problem.
