Has anyone timed their boot time? How long does it take for you guys to get from Grub to a KDE desktop?

I don't imagine KDE would be much different. The majority of the boot time on a Linux box has nothing to do with the DE. For me, once everything else has started up (network config, mounting filesystems etc) KDM comes up in a few seconds, and from there to the desktop is very fast. With Gnome I'm sure it's the same way.

With my system it's a little longer tha 15 seconds, but that's nothing to do with KDE; it's all the stuff before. Improvements there (I'm on Debian) will be what helps. Perhaps Upstart someday, if it makes its way to Debian.
