Those of you who are interested in seeing faster booting times might get a pleasant surprise in the next release cycle of your favorite distro. The big project currently underway to deliver more speed is called "systemD" and Fedora, at least, hopes to deliver it by April 2011:

I'm not a Fedora user myself (currently using Lubuntu), but I think all the big distros will implement systemD as soon as possible.
