Linux Lennart Poettering, the author of systemd, has announced: "I just put a first version of a wiki document together that lists a couple of easy optimizations to get your boot times down to [less than] 2s. It also includes a list of suggested things to hack on to get even quicker boot-ups."

When will we see this in Fedora?

I'm very interested in systemd, and getting boot time down to 2 seconds sounds pretty amazing. However, current version of Fedora is way slower, even slower than Ubuntu's Upstart. So I'm wondering if this new super-fast boot setup will find its way into the next Fedora release? I'm currently an Ubuntu user, but I'd give Fedora another look if they could come up with a 2-second boot-up.

If such amazing boot times can be achieved, maybe Mark Shuttleworth would reconsider systemd. It's kind of troubling that Linux initialization is becoming ever more fragmented with SysVinit, Upstart, OpenRC and systemd all competing for mind-share. That's got to be making things more complicated for developers.
