Boot-time improvements

I'm not quite sure what all the ranting is all about regarding Ubuntu
boot times. I never really even thought of it until it was mentioned on
the mailing list here. So, as a test, I timed my own system how long it
takes to boot. From GRUB boot to login screen, it was 36.72 secs. And
that is on a Celeron D with 512MB DDR RAM and booting from an old IDE
hard drive. I'd imagine that a more recent dual core setup with more ram
and a more recent sata hard drive would have better results. But my mere
36 secs is certainly nothing to rant about.

I dunno what you are all complaining about really.
