[SEMI-OT] Impressive F11 boot speed



Great job, whoever setup the F11 boot scripts.

My old Intel motherboard box, P4, boots F11 from a cold start to runlevel 3 in 18 seconds (includes the BIOS time). I don't use any of the graphical boot stuff.

I was on the phone last night with a Comcast tech trying to fix a broken cable modem. After lots of modem resets, he announced that I should reboot the box, so I said OK. About 20 seconds later, I told him the box was ready. He then told me he meant shutdown and reboot, not just logout and login. At this point I had to laugh and admit I was running Linux (I never tell them unless I have to, I just pretend to do the Windows commands they suggest). He was extremely impressed and admitted that he has a Ubuntu box at home. I suggested that he give Fedora a spin.

Regards,

John
