Fast boot

How to make Linux boot faster?

  1. Keep CPU and disk I/O usage rate to or near 100%, that is, take full advantage of CPU speed and disk I/O throughput.
  2. Reduce works needed in boot.

Previous, I think the method 2 is more important, such as substituting boot with resuming from hibernation. But I think Moblin team achieve a great result with mainly method 1.
