Great work - and seeing the fruits of this in normal distributions cannot come a moment too soon. It's laughable that my 64-bit dual-core beast of a machine still takes longer to boot our favourite efficient, modular OS than my 166MHz Pentium took to boot Windoze in 1996.
Let's declare war on bloat and get the majority out-of-the-box Linux desktops booting in <5 seconds! No-one cares if servers take a few minutes to boot, but this article highlights some of the silliness occurring with humble netbooks. Mind you, I did wonder about buying another cheap netbook and using it as a lightweight home server :-)
