Like you said it takes 40 seconds to boot Open Solaris, in that time I could of booted my Fedora machine, logged in, sent an email and started shutting down with the new boot scripting Fedora has added.


Bollocks. Fedora 10 takes more than a minute to boot.

This article lists it at 69.27 seconds.

This one says 66 seconds:

Try to be honest in your comments. The pro linux hyperbole is unnecessary.

"I did the test by installing the three distributions through Parallels Desktop virtual machine" Virtual machine??? Say what!

And on the other one they are way back on Fedora 9???

"With Fedora 9 Sulphur due out next month, we have done this same boot performance testing on the Fedora side with Core 4, Core 5, Core 6, 7, 8, and 9 Rawhide."

Are you still sleep bro? Come on now I know its early in the morning!

I mean I can go dig up some old Open Solaris testing and prob find 1 minute or more boot times also.

So you are an even bigger liar. Fedora 10 is supposed to have a faster boot time. It is one of the advertised features.

I have seen no evidence of a sub 60 second boot for fedora.

So all the distros are booting on the same platform. So the test results are valid. Say what?

Show me some evidence where fedora can boot up... you can login.. fire up an email client send and email and shutdown in less that 40 seconds.

You made the claim now prove it! Otherwise shut up!

You claimed OpenSolaris takes 3x as long to boot. So you will have to show me evidence of a 3 minute normal boot up for OpenSolaris to prove the point you made.

Chop. Chop. Start gathering the proof.
