    May I be a fanboy for a moment? Well, then, read this short article benchmarking Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 64-bit edition boot time on a notebook equipped with Solid State Disk (SSD) storage. Pointless and fun at the same time.

    Cheers,

    Too bad my BIOS is slower than booting the whole OS :(

    Interesting Mrk!

    I have installed Mint Julia on an Intel X25 80GB drive (Samsung Q330 with I3 M350 / 3GB DDR3) and get to usable desktop in 12 to 15 seconds :) - usable, that is, except for the Broadcom wireless that takes a further (mildly frustrating) 30 seconds o_O

    Shutdown, however, is a super-convenient 4 seconds :)

    I booted narwhal in ~11 sec off my pen :) When I wipe for 7SP1 I'll be creating a partition on the new ssd for it.
