http://www.tuxopia.net – MontaVista® Software, Inc., announced the achievement of ultra-fast boot times on MontaVista Linux for embedded industrial applications. At the Virtual Freescale Technology Forum this week, MontaVista will be demonstrating a sample dashboard application fully operational in one second from cold boot, achieving a level of previously unmatched performance on any embedded Linux. There have been many previous attempts by other groups in order to speed up the Linux booting process. The most recent of it was the Moblin Linux distribution which acheived a 5 second bootup(kernel to Desktop) and also the Presto PC from Xandros which gave a 10 second bootup.
