Linux It's been over a year since the last time I reviewed (1, 2) the Linux distribution that I use most of the time, Arch Linux. Since then, while the distro-specific innovations have slowed a bit down, maturity and stability has emerged.

The reason why Arch boots fast is partialy because it enables parallel execution of some init scripts, but mainly because the scripts witch must be executed sequentialy are few and get processed quickley. Its, at least to my experience, the fastest booting linux distro.

It would be nice if Ubuntu (the others aswell but Ubuntu is my distro of choice) implement something similar on the next release.

Yes, I'm a speed freak.
