An Update On The Boot & Power Performance In Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| In December we wrote that Ubuntu 10.04 
| already shortened the boot time, which has 
| been a great focus amongst Canonical and 
| Ubuntu developers as they strive for a ten 
| second boot. A lot has changed since that 
| article was published last year, including 
| the introduction of Plymouth and many 
| kernel mode-setting improvements along with 
| the introduction of Nouveau for NVIDIA KMS 
| support. We've ran a new boot performance 
| comparison on two laptops and a netbook as 
| we see how the boot times are looking with 
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS when compared to Ubuntu 
| 9.10. We have also looked at how the power 
| consumption has changed in the Lucid Lynx 
| for these mobile devices.
