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. With the release this week of MeeGo 1.2, we have some Bootchart numbers for MeeGo 1.2 Netbook UX compared to Fedora 14 and Ubuntu 11.04.

The testing was done on a Samsung NC10 with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and an OCZ Core 32GB SSD. The Bootchart numbers are provided below and measured the time through the automatic log-in process for each Linux distribution release.

MeeGo 1.2 booted in 15 seconds on the Intel Atom netbook, Ubuntu 11.04 booted in 26 seconds, and Fedora 14 took 30 seconds. More numbers coming in the next couple of days.
