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."

Why do fast boot times matter?

Can anyone explain to me why fast boot times matter? I reboot my laptop at most a few times a year when I upgrade my kernel. I suspend-to-RAM several times a day, and hibernate when I travel.

Aren't fast login times much more important on multi-user systems?
