Second Lucid Lynx alpha said to offer 15-second start-ups
Open Source

The second alpha of Ubuntu 10.06 boasts 15-second boot-time, says an industry report. Meanwhile, the Ubuntu project posted a controversial survey about which proprietary apps might be considered for inclusion with the distro, and Canonical announced a support plan for IBM's Ubuntu/Lotus "Smart Work" cloud distribution.

The Canonical-backed Ubuntu Project released the second of three alphas last week for Ubuntu 10.04 ("Lucid Lynx"), which arrived in its first alpha incarnation last month. Due for final release on April 29, Lucid Lynx builds upon Linux kernel 2.6.32, moving up from the Linux 2.6.31 kernel in Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). It also offers the latest GNOME 2.29.3 desktop, and the Kubuntu version offers a beta of the KDE SC 4.4 desktop, says the Ubuntu project.

On ChannelWeb, Ed Moltzen tried out the second alpha and reports that Ubuntu boots in only 15 seconds, compared to an already estimable 20 seconds for the initial alpha release. By comparison, tested on the same PC, Windows 7 came in at a surprisingly respectable 30 seconds (which is no doubt much faster than Vista would have fared), even beating out Fedora 12 (37 seconds), but still twice as slow as Ubuntu. Moltzen's system is based on an Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 clocked at 2.80GHz, with 2GB of RAM. Canonical's goal for Ubuntu is a 10-second start-up time, said Moltzen.
