Like you said it takes 40 seconds to boot Open Solaris, in that time I could of booted my Fedora machine, logged in, sent an email and started shutting down with the new boot scripting Fedora has added.


Bollocks. Fedora 10 takes more than a minute to boot.

This article lists it at 69.27 seconds.

Try to be honest in your comments. The pro linux hyperbole is unnecessary.
