Linux It's been over a year since the last time I reviewed (1, 2) the Linux distribution that I use most of the time, Arch Linux. Since then, while the distro-specific innovations have slowed a bit down, maturity and stability has emerged.

You could always enable simpleinit and boot parallel in any distro, it's part of the util-linux package:

cd util-linux-2.12a
make HAVE_KILL=yes HAVE_SLN=yes
cd login-utils
make HAVE_KILL=yes HAVE_SLN=yes all-getty all-init all-misc
make HAVE_KILL=yes HAVE_SLN=yes install-init install-getty install-misc
cd ..
make HAVE_KILL=yes HAVE_SLN=yes install

and you'll need some new rc scripts or add needs/provides statements to your existing, or take and hack mine: http://gnnix.org/base/root/dist/usr/src/gnxbootscripts-0.8/sbin/ini...
