You would be shocked at how fast some of my old servers for which I
compiled kernels boot... We're talking about hardware over 10 years old
and it puts any modern desktop with ubuntu installed to shame.  System
boots and is at a log in prompt before my desktop has even finished with

Alas, I have discovered with age and wisdom, after having gone through

'agnosticly' on a moments notice trumps boot time.
