For what it's worth, Windows XP boots a hell of a lot faster - all the
way in - than Ubuntuu and gnome does. On my laptop, atleast. Even when
I skip setting up the nonexistant ethernet connection on boot. A 45
second boot time does't exactly help user-perceived performance when
you show off Ubuntu to a friend, either ;-)
