Red Hat The Fedora team has clearly spent a lot of time trying to refine some of the smaller, but perhaps more common user interface elements in some thoughtful ways. Take, for instance, the new setting that allows you to manage power settings from the login screen. It's a small tweak but it makes shutting down simple. There's no need to login when you wake from hibernate - just shut down straight from the login screen. Similar attention to these basics can be found throughout the new release.

Upstart in fedora 9 has no impact whatsoever to the boot time. Upstart is implemented in emulation only mode for F9 meaning that upstart will just run the "old" SYS V init scripts, without any performance gain whatsoever. This is done to get the framework in place and for F10 and later gradually start changing the init scripts from SystemV to upstart scripts.

that being said F9 does boot faster then F8 (how could it not?) but it has more to do with optimizing the current scripts and the implementation of xorg-server 1.4.999 which starts X a lot faster but nothing at all with upstart, neither on desktops nor laptops.
