10 seconds boot is already here!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Hardware: Lenovo X200s with Mushkin Europe 2 120GB SSD instead of default Seagate 5000rpm disk. Boot to fully functional (default) Jaunty desktop from cold start (powered off) is less than 30 seconds. If BIOS, grub and kernel/initrd loading are excluded, boot time is less than 10 seconds.

Except the automatic login in gdm there were *no* other changes in Ubuntu.
