Ubuntu Tips - Boot Faster

With the amazing feats performed by Linux kernel developers over the years, you might be tempted to think that systems installed with the latest Ubuntu distribution are already running at the fastest possible speed. However, this is often not the case. Ubuntu's developers, Canonical, have to appeal to a wide audience, and ensure that their distribution runs with a diverse set of hardware. This has the unfortunate consequence that systems are not always fully optimised.
