Explaining Ubuntu's 10 Second Boot Time
Phoronix: Explaining Ubuntu's 10 Second Boot Time
We shared two weeks ago that Plymouth would not be making its way to Ubuntu with the next 9.10 release as was once planned. Instead Canonical is putting their focus on improving the boot time so that there is less rationale for spending time on making a fashionable boot experience...
why the long development time?
I don't get it. Clearly Intel has already done this work in Moblin, so why can Ubuntu developer not simply copy the methodology of Moblin?
It is just a linux distribution after all, there is no shame in copying, and it certainly is not illegal?
If two-second boot times are possible _now_ other distro's should just figure out how it is done, and copy that. Not outright copy the code, but adapt the upstart code to match what moblin does.
Linux could be so much greater if not everyone keeps inventing the wheel over and over.
I must be missing something...
