We arent optimising the default desktop install live or otherwise for an 
actual desktop install. It's currently aimed at "Generic" or "Corporate 
" installs.

This is my HP Pavilion DM1 laptop bootup time with rooms for improvement 
after minor tweaking on rotating media with no loss of functionality 
what so ever.

# systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 5761ms (kernel) + 11938ms (userspace) = 17700ms

I'm assuming the kernel time improves once we turn off debugging in it.

Afaik none of the *DE groups are properly tweaking things for their 
target audience.

Anything above 4 seconds on ssd's would I consider unacceptable ( I 
think Lennart and Kay are booting around s1><4s second on those )
