Hey there, hereby starting the next "what services are really needed" flamewar ;). No, really, have a look at that bootchart: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=intel_moblin_2&num=2 They claim that their netbook boots in 7-8s with moblin alpha. Ok, they start xfce instead of gnome/kde but just think of booting that thing into gdm. This would already completely exceed the 10s startup feature of fedora 12. And look at what they start: udev, hal, dbus, all those things that tend to slow down boot are there (well, no sendmail daemon). So how can they do that?
