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."

I realize you're not being serious, but... That is not the same kind of functionality. Way too much stuff on Linux is tied to heavy desktop environments - networking and automatic power management in particular stand out. Getting this stuff working under a standalone WM tends to require extensive configuration or ugly, insecure hacks.

(And in the case of NetworkManager, it doesn't work in a command line environment, period. nmcli is a complete joke.)

Pretty annoying. Especially seeing as laptops, which could theoretically benefit the most from a lightweight environment, are currently left with crippled functionality.
