Why do you say so? Many things have been iteratively improved. The
booting speed is much better now. Try http://bootchart.sf.net or
http://people.redhat.com/berrange/systemtap/bootprobe/ to measure this.

sure it has improved but not that much, for me FC4 booted faster than FC5 (because of early login)
Early login was in development but it stopped,
Systemservices was never in a working state.
Any plans on improving the boot process in FC6?
I would suggest to use initng which is in review for extras now [1].
But to get it in the final release it would be better to have it in rawhide rather than in extras.

Initng review has not been completed yet and doesnt work on many systems
with a number of issues been highlighted and worked upon during the
review process.
I know this, because I am working on getting it working too (adding selinux support).
If it ends up in Fedora Extras first, it would be easier
to check how well it works and later move into Fedora Core if suitable.

rawhide is the place to test new technolgies, if it turns out to be a bad idea we can remove it before FC6,
but extras is not the place for such apps.
