Will Ubuntu 9.04 Be Jauntily Fast?

| When announcing Ubuntu 9.04, the Jaunty Jackalope, Mark Shuttleworth had
| hoped to make this next Ubuntu Linux release perform better and to
| boot "blindingly quick", in particular with Ubuntu beginning to appear on
| more mobile devices. Well, with Alpha 4 have been released earlier this
| month, are Canonical developers and the community in the right direction with
| making Ubuntu 9.04 boot quickly? We have boot-time benchmarks of the latest
| Ubuntu 9.04 work along with Linux desktop benchmarks comparing it to its
| predecessor, Ubuntu 8.10.
| [...]
| Ubuntu 9.04 is not being officially released until April, but already it
| appears to be in good standing. On the Intel Atom netbook we used for this
| round of testing, the boot time was shaved by eight seconds, which is quite
| noticeable.

| He may sound innocent, but Leigh Dyer has attempted to get Linux working on
| an iPod, which means help desk workers everywhere view him as "difficult". He
| also knows his stuff. Leigh is a software developer and systems administrator
| with more than 10 years Linux and Windows experience.
