Fedora Core "When I initially published the article, Boot Fedora Linux Faster, neither my server or me was ready for 22k visitors in one day. It seems that there is a great interest in the topic of reducing boot time. So I think a challenge is in order to get Linux people together to try to reduce boot time."

Back in the day when I worked on Alpha Micros, I was at a show.

During the demo, the system crashed (this happened reasonably often on Alpha Micros), and without skipping a beat the vendor quipped "But look how fast it boots!" because they had special software to speed up the entire init process.
