I run a monolithic kernel too, everything I need is compiled in things I don't need are not compiled at all, I only have about 4 modules which makes for a nice quick compile time when you're following git master and very quick git-bisects

Count me in the list of people that apreciate fast boot times. For all I care boot time should be 3 seconds since I turn on my computer. When I turn it on I want to use it straight away. And no, suspending is not an option because that uses some power. Hibernating is actually slower (on resume) than a cold boot. I wonder how meego can get such awesome boot times. Last time I checked it was taking 30 seconds on my crappy Eee pc, and that's when running from an old and slow USB stick.
