Virtualization changes things.

The way _I_ use Fedora involves booting it dozens of times a day (of
course, I'm talking about a VM or a very small Fedora appliance).

In any case, why *not* make things faster?  The way things are now, I
have computers that boot a hundred of times more *slowly* than the
first computer I owned.  Yes they do hundreds of times more things,
but they also have a processor that is orders of magnitude faster.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
