Hey-hey, hope all are going well through these last winter days in the North and through the heat of the summer in South:)
Here is something from our Kernel Guru, NicCo:
“After the implementation of the new disk I/O BFQv7r2, and all the other small fixes and tuneups around 3.12.x, we’ve noticed that with the latest kernel 3.12.12 we can obtain a much faster boot time compared with the one possible with the previous kernels 3.12.8/9, tested with modern hardware this can oscillate from 14to15 secs to a bit less than 10 secs.
These are results in my own PC and also in this test of bvbfan
If you wish to test it, please do and verify if these boot-time results are fortunate and/or random cases, or if with the most of hardware are confirmed!
Your comments and results are most welcome in the comments to this post.
