[News] Ubuntu GNU/Linux Gets a Lot Faster Over Time, 64-bit Works Even Better

Hash: SHA1

| After updating to Jaunty, bootchart showed a boot time of 23 seconds and a 
| real time measurement of 34 seconds. That’s a real time improvement of 32 
| percent!  


Ubuntu 9.04: 32-bit vs 64-bit benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| Most Linux users run a 32-bit distro, and many of them run a 32-bit distro on 
| a 64-bit computer. The question is, why? We put 32-bit Ubuntu 9.04 
| head-to-head with its 64-bit counterpart to see what difference it really 
| makes, and whether old compatibility worries are justified.   



The Fastest Boot in the West

,----[ Quote ]
| Granted, the fast seek times for data access with the SSD contributed to
| Xandros's (the eeePC OS) speedy boot time, but users became enamored with the
| quick, "less than one minute," access to their apps. Thus was born the race
| to the fastest boot time.

| Remember, xPUD is a DIY OS. Therefore, many exciting features like xPUD
| Switch Mode (the ability to toggle into another OS, a la Splashtop) haven't
| been implemented yet. That's where you come in. You can help with the
| development of xPUD. What do you get for your effort? A backstage pass to
| helping with the development of a real contender to the moniker "fastest-boot
| OS" in the West (and the East).


The Linux Instant-On Craze

,----[ Quote ]
| Seems like the developing trend towards Linux-based, Instant-on environments
| is just beginning to blossom.  The folks over at Netbooknews.de are featuring
| a brief video showing the speed of the new Linpus Linux quick boot OS.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
