Why does it take as long to boot Fedora 23 in 2016 as it did to boot Windows 95 in 1995?
I knew we were slow, but I did not realize how slow:
Startup finished in 9.002s (firmware) + 5.586s (loader) + 781ms (kernel) + 24.845s (initrd) + 1min 16.803s (userspace) = 1min 57.019s
Two minutes. (Edit: The 25 seconds in initrd is mostly time spent waiting for me to enter my LUKS password. Still, 1.5 minutes.)
$ systemd-analyze blame
This review of Fedora 23 shows how severely our boot speed has regressed (spoiler: 56.5% slower than Fedora 21, 49% slower than Ubuntu 15.10). The review also shows that Fedora 23 takes twice as long to power off as Fedora 22.
I think we can do better.
