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."

The number one suggestion is to not us LLVM.

Well, back ups are a gazillion times more important to me than boot time improvements, so no. Heck no.


Number two is also requires not using LLVM. So double heck no to that.


Did you notice that the article is mostly about configuring systemd for appliance-type hardware, not for a desktop or server?

This is for an environment where a) hardware is a constant and so modules aren't required, and b) the root partition is going to be on a simple disk setup, probably an SSD. In that environment, neither LVM nor initrd are required.

Again, this is *not* about your personal desktop machine or laptop.
