Member since:

Just to add on, it's more complicated than that if you wanted to make that a permanent setup, because init sends out TTY hooks so that the kernel knows to start virtual terminals. So, yes, changing to /bin/sh would get you raw boot speed, but you wouldn't be able to get to shell. You'd be surprised how hard it is to turn Linux into a genuinely single user system (not just selecting single user mode at boot and running as root).

But I understood your comment, which was just talking about the benchmark usage. Point taken.
