Re: IDEA: Shortening boot-time



As a desktop user, and considering I have to pay the power bill, I
prefer to shut my computer down whenever I don't use it, why should I
keep it up aside showing off the size of my member by having a
proportionally huge uptime?
For most users it serves no logical purpose to have an always on
solution, and there's no reason why our boot time should be suboptimal.
