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."

Isn't that considered glacial, these days?
Ubuntu 9 booted for me in 3 seconds.
Ubuntu 10 boots for me in 2 minutes.
Glad to see we're back on track, but wtf?
