    Absolutely agree. Fast boot is nice, but it would be even better if we didn't have to boot in the first place.

    By the way, I would prefer working suspend-to-disk to working suspend-to-RAM, even though it is necessarily a bit slower, but I like to power everything off entirely for the night.

    sreadahead

    Were Those tests in Karmic performed with sreadahead installed?

    I think it has been published in Karmic the same day (08/25).

    Been trying to read about the status of Upstart in Debian.
    Has anyone installed 0.6.3 in testing and also seen their boot time reduce by significant amount?
    Is it stable?
    Will it replace sysvinit in Squeeze for certain?
    I'm reluctant to try it only because I've read some bug reports from people who installed it and couldn't switch back to sysvinit afterwards.

    Don't they have debugging processes running in the Alpha build? That would slow things down.

    If it only where possible to (easily!) replace the proprietary BIOS with coreboot. Then every aspect of the boot procedure could have been manipulated.

    You're damn right.
    I was only discussing about the method to define a "boot time"

    The "10 second boot time" for 10.04 LTS means _to the desktop_, not to the gdm. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in this case bootchart was stopped at S99/rc2.d, and no automatic logging in was used.

    There are often unclearness about what the "boot time" means, but Ubuntu developer(s) have specified, which I support also, that the only meaningful boot time is from GRUB to desktop with all services started and system usable. (the time before GRUB cannot be affected)

    More to come...

    I do believe that the boot performance delivery milestone is the beta (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FoundationsT...eStatus/Karmic)

    So it looks like there's more to come ;-)

    Strange, because on my AMD single core system, the boot times are far noticeably faster on 9.10 and also X starts very fast too.
