but there is something one could do about it - at least windows can.
I did some simple stopwatch comparisions:

Time from grub to...

    Desktop shows up: 28s
    Firefox shows up: 48s

    Desktop shows up: 100s
    Firefox shows up: 109s

this was by no mean made in a scientific envoirbent and I started 
firefox by hand and not with autostart, but I think the dimensons speak 
for themselves.
