Hello
I have made 5 attempts to boot for every different kernel tested, to have a reliable average speed on the boot time kernel, the Distro used is the new ROSA Fresh R3, I expected already cool results, the latest results are even better than those expected!

The times recorded are related to nr. 5 retries:
  • kernel 3.10.34 - (default in ROSA Fresh R3)
  • kernel 3.10.37 - (update that has had not the time enough for QA)
  • kernel 3.13.11 - (the same version used for OpenMandriva 2014.0)
Here are some numbers, judge by yourself:
with R3 kernel boot times are almost halved, decreased by about nearly 5 second
  • 10.1 secs with 3.10.34 (with R2)
  • 5.7 secs with 3.10.37 (with R3)
  • 5.5 secs with 3.13.11 (with R3)

Ultimi test eseguiti, subito dopo aver installato il nuovo kernel LTS 3.10.38

I risultati rimangono ottimi, kernel boot sotto i 6 secondi: tra 5.7 e 5.8
con il caricamento complessivo però si effettua sempre entro i 30 secs

ancora una volta c'è un guadagno di circa 6 secondi sul kernel 3.10.34,
che porta un guadagno complessivo di circa il 20% di tempo in meno :D

Another old PC and another confirm, with newer kernels like 3.10.38 vs 3.10.34, boot times are better:
this confirm the new I/O disk scheduler R3 is faster than R2 especially when there are old hard-disk...
