It's curious Fedora 9 showed such poor results compared with Ubuntu (and
compared with Fedora 8), given that they are listing fast Xorg boot as a
feature.  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/OneSecondX

I'll be interested to see if the fast Xorg boot stuff in the upcoming
Xorg 1.5 will boost our boot numbers, or if the Xorg boot time just gets
lost in the noise.
