Ubuntu Light Netbook operating system boots in 7 seconds

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2010

When it comes to booting up your netbook, how fast is fast enough? Windows users are used to waiting anywhere from a few seconds to minutes depending on your system’s configuration platform. Any recent computer has a decent start time, but if you are impatient, you might want to consider Ubuntu Light.

This version will boot up your netbook in just 7 seconds. It’s a full-fledged Linux distribution which offers all the usual tools that come with a desktop OS, like your web browser, office suite, communication and security features and compatibility with thousands of third party apps. The hardware used to achieve this 7 second boot time is a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v that runs on an 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor.

Fast enough for you?
