LinuxDevices.com looks at MontaVista's Mobilinux 5.0
, an upcoming distribution aimed at mobile phone use. "'Typical' phones based on Mobilinux 5.0 are said to be capable of booting in under five seconds, and placing calls within 10. Boot times are reduced through XIP (execute-in-place) technology that runs applications directly from flash, without first instantiating them in RAM. Application startup times are reduced by prelinking, including to glibc.
