    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...

    Some more information about what software components are faster would be nice.

    Default Conclusions?

    It looks like the kernel+initrd finishes faster on MeeGo and MeeGo simply starts less. However it's hard to tell because the MeeGo chart is not high resolution so it's difficult to read...

    Default Why not Fedora 15?
