The Other Issue With Ubuntu 11.10: Boot Speed

Filed under
Ubuntu

Besides Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" continuing to regress when it comes to increased power usage (new data from last week, plus also see motherboards with broken ASPM on Linux from yesterday) for many different systems, another area where Ubuntu 11.10 has regressed is with its boot speed. A clean install of Ubuntu 11.10 is definitively slower than previous Ubuntu Linux releases. Here's another look at the Ubuntu Oneiric boot performance along with some other new metrics to share as the official Ubuntu 11.10 release approaches later in the week.

With the planned release of Ubuntu 11.10 on Thursday, plus the Linux 3.1 kernel release being imminent, there's a number of new and interesting benchmarks that will be on Phoronix in the coming days and weeks (plus the usual increase in articles for the post-Oktoberfest season). In this article is another look at the Ubuntu 11.10 boot performance along with power consumption and other areas of system performance from Oneiric.
