sbiewald371631dFunny. Windows XP booted in 15 seconds on an IDE drive.
And Windows 3.11 did it from drives of its age.
And Windows 10 or a current Linux distributions does it from PCI SSDs. Fascinating, isn't it?
I assume this is progress, isn't it?
Fast-Nop2857331dI was using a 5400 RPM HDD as only harddisk until this week.
IntrusionCM326830dHm, I have no problem with KDE at all.
Slow start usually means a service isn't working as intended, since the splash only stops when all services reported successful start or a fixed timeout.
I3M and other window managers will definitely be faster, since they don't use eg DBUS / services / and so on.
Except you configure them to autostart ;)
EmberQuill222730d@IntrusionCM Hmm. I didn't have anything in autostart other than ksuperkey. Not sure why the splash screen took so long, but even after my desktop loaded, it would still run extremely slowly for the first couple of minutes. I never could figure out what it was doing in the background during that period of lag. Perhaps there was something wrong with the HDD itself.
Regardless, that slowness is gone now.
