Linux Lennart Poettering, the author of systemd, has announced: "I just put a first version of a wiki document together that lists a couple of easy optimizations to get your boot times down to [less than] 2s. It also includes a list of suggested things to hack on to get even quicker boot-ups."

I have had similar results. On my hardware Ubuntu (with Upstart) boots faster than Fedora (with systemd). Not by a lot, I wouldn't say the time difference is either large, or important. However, it does make me question whether systemd is worth the effort to implement and adopt.

If you read the list, you will notice that some of the things that slow down systemd boot time is support for advanced storage options in Fedora, like LVM, iScsi, etc. Fedora defaults are the problem (for a pure desktop user) not systemd
