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."

Functionality is more important to me than raw login speed, so I'll stick with KDE. I admit that I haven't really investigated improving login times under Kubuntu, but it is something I maintain with Windows. I think I'll take a peek later tonight.

Windows is especially bad, since it seems that every time you install or update something, commercial software wants to add something that launches automatically, so every time I install something I fire up msconfig and check to make sure only what I want to launch at startup actually launches.
Apple is especially bad. I have banished it from my desktop. If I want to add something to my iPod, I fire up a virtual machine dedicated to iTunes.

Speaking of which, I just removed and added a bunch of software, so I'd better check...

EDIT: Then again, KDE can be overwhelming with features, so I think I'll check it out...
