But as mentioned before, they did it by shoving off a bunch of the stuff
til after the desktop shows so that it's unusable for a few minutes
after login while the hard drive churns away.

And 30s is considered bringing it down?  Wow, how long was it before?
Is there a goal we have for boot time?  30s seems about average for boot
time right now.  At least, all of my laptops boot in 25-35 seconds.
