    'The result will be a Linux system without mail, firewall, printing, the abrt tools, avahi, some mountpoints, rsyslog, irqbalance, and selinux security.'

    Right. That's pretty bare.
    I'm certainly not going to maltreat my fresh F17 install like this guy did but some useful options, like disabling LVM/raid services etc come in handy.
    Still, if I had such an Intel SSD, boot times wouldn't be my main concern.
    Funny to read how he shaves of milliseconds with rigor. thx for posting.
     
  3. With an Intel SSD? Yawn. I worked on machines with SSDs at my last job; they would boot Ubuntu in about 5 seconds without any tweaking at all. SSDs make fast booting easy.

    Anyway IMO it would be more worthwhile to work on speeding up login time, rather than boot time. KDE especially is quite slow to log in, and Linux users have to log out and back in a lot more often than they have to reboot.

    Xfce is relatively snappy to log into.
