    Phoronix: Canonical Once Again Aiming To Improve Ubuntu's Boot Speed

    Nearly a decade ago Canonical/Ubuntu developers had a goal of a 10 second boot time. They made good on that for their netbook focus at the time, but in the years since their boot time has slowed down and we haven't seen any concerted effort on improving their boot speed again...

      I'm on 17.10 and they've kept true to their promise. Though I of course welcome more improvement.

      Code:
      $ systemd-analyze time
      Startup finished in 6.942s (kernel) + 2.112s (userspace) = 9.054s

          I want to build a new machine, but those gpu prices and ram prices have screwed that idea..... f*** cryptominers ruining hardware prices!

              Other ubuntu flavors seem to boot reasonably fast since they are mostly Debian. Xubuntu on my phenom II 945 with an ssd boots to the login screen 4 seconds after the bios. Not bad for a 10 year old machine. Hdd light stays solid during boot, not sure how they plan on improving that.

                This is something that Linux really should excel at, even windows boots pretty fast these days (on shiny new machines).

                  sudo apt-mark hold intel-microcode

                  To keep the mitigated microcode from 1/8/2018

                  apt-cache show intel-microcode
                  Version: 3.20180108.0+really20170707ubuntu17.10.1
                  Version: 3.20180108.0~ubuntu17.10.1
                  Version: 3.20170707.1
                  Noticed that too. Side note, do you know if today's kernel update (4.13.0-31) contains retpoline support? I'm not seeing it in the changelog but thought they mentioned that was being released today.

                    You don't need to do it, just install newest Intel microcode, these have unintended sudden reboot feature implemented
