Computer boot up.
« on: August 12, 2013, 08:42:28 am »
My desktop computer with Linux Ubuntu boots in about a minute and my notebook with Zorin boots in about 30 seconds.  My car don't take as long as that,  in fact it  starts first time every time in a second.  You don't even have to wait for it to boot up,  even if it stalls at traffic lights.  Where can I get a computer like they have in Star Trek ?

All a car engine needs to start is to inject fuel/air into a pressurized cylinder and ignite it so If your car took 5 seconds to start it would be too long and no PC can boot up in that time so it's hardly a fair comparison Bill, I don't think anybody thinks their PC boots up quick enough any more than they think their kettle boils quick enough :)

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

Manjaro - significantly faster than every other distro I've ever seen.
My laptop goes from up and running, to reboot, to back up and running in under 30 seconds.

Irritating installer though - a modern Linux distro, designed to 'make things easy' and the installer will not allow you to install to more than one hard drive (so no /home partition on a separate drive) unless you know how to hand configure all the relevant files.


But very, very fast.

Yeah, I love Star Trek. See my ears. I even sit up at night growing them.   Don't like Deep Space Nine.

If you want near-instant boot up times, get a solid state drive ;)
