Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

"As I already wrote in the article, ubuntu starts much faster than in older versions."

Yes, but what I wanted to know is whether this is thanks to Upstart (meaning: upstart is the default), or because of other improvements to the boot process (meaning: upstart is not the default).

And aside from the boot time, upstart is supposed to have other advantages such as when working with removable devices.
