Submission + - Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Boots in 8.6 Seconds Flat! (digitizor.com) 1

dkd903 writes: Ubuntu 10.10 has only entered the Beta. However, it looks like it is doing extremely well in cutting down the boot time.

There is even a video showing Ubuntu 10.10 in a mere 8.6 seconds. That is the total time it takes from GRUB to get to a usable desktop. However the computer on which this happened, uses a SSD.
