    Actually, most UEFI/BIOS have a option for quick boot. In fact, a Gigabyte mobo I have has a option that boots so fast, you loose the ability to enter again on the UEFI interface, until you erase the CMOS...
    Actually you can boot into UEFI in this case - Windows 10 has a special button in Settings app On Linux Google says
    Code:
    systemctl reboot --firmware-setup
    can do that also.

    Well, optimizing the boot time is nice, but I hope they could really focus on firmware instead of kernel/init:
    Startup finished in 16.115s (firmware) + 339ms (loader) + 4.335s (kernel) + 2.296s (userspace) = 23.086s

    I could probably shave off few seconds from kernel/userspace and disable the boot loader, but I couldn't find any way to optimize the UEFI firmware beyond 16 seconds.

    Try laptops instead. There's nothing you can do to speed them up. Those gamer desktop mobos can boot fast, but most enterprise laptops just won't do it.

    Why not just use Clear Linux itself?

    The only thing that is obvious is that you have no clue what you are talking about.

    You know what is the best thing about this? You really deserve windows

    If your English is not the best, then maybe you can write in your native language and auto-translate it for us. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make, unless you're saying these optimizations should have already been in place in other distros.
