"Is Ubuntu 9.04 booting faster than its predecessor? With the Intel Atom netbook at least, it is a resounding yes! It took 29 seconds to boot Ubuntu 8.10 but only 21 seconds for Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 4. Bootchart measured these results, all settings were left at their defaults, and in each case we did a clean installation of Ubuntu occupying the entire solid-state drive.
