I got Haiku to boot in around 7 seconds as well. To get that I did:

- Install Haiku onto a partition.
- Boot the OS

On a serious note, the slides that are linked on the site are a pretty interesting read.

Install onto a SSD and booting Haiku-OS drops to less than 5 seconds on 1.67GHz Netbook.

Yeah, we are still slow. We should turn down the logging and optimize a few things, but atm we want the info from the logs. ;)
