Il Linux più veloce che c’è
Apparsa su distrowatch questa notizia:
First look: MACH BOOT – a live CD that boots in 10 seconds
Su distrowatch capiamo che è basata su Debian con Xorg 7.0, IceWM window manager e Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168
MACH BOOT is based on Debian and uses kernel 2.6.16. The graphical subsystem is powered by X.Org 7.0 and, as mentioned above, the window manager is IceWM (1.2.28). Besides the usual Debian tools and a handful of simple utilities, the only other software package worth mentioning is Mozilla Firefox (version 22.214.171.124).
I emailed Mr Okajima, asking him about the licence, availability of source code and status of patents (if any), but he declined to answer any of these questions: “These issues are being discussed with my business partners at this very moment. The answers will only be published after all negotiations are concluded.” The developer of the MACH BOOT CD made it clear that he intended to monetise his invention in one way or another and was currently looking into various options. But aside from the business prospects of the project, one thing is clear – MACH BOOT, from a purely technological point of view, is a remarkable achievement. It is simply the fastest booting live CD by a considerable margin.
Sulla home page si trovano scarse informazioni a riguardo:
MACH BOOT is an experimental CD booting technology with the goal
of getting very fast booting with x48 CD-ROM drive.
1. Booting very fast, usually within 10 secs from x48 CD-ROM drive.
2. Launching apps is also fast. Almost same as from HDD.
3. Customizable. You can make it “MACH” with any distribution,
including your original one.
4. (Hopefully) Better PnP than KNOPPIX.
Concept and Programming : Okajima, Jun.
Special Thanks : All people of LazyFS and tmpfs, Especially Dr. Thomas Leonard.

La mia modesta prova su VMware è stata impressionante (non vi aspettate chissà quali software installati)
solo 12 secondi!
per arrivare al window manager :-O
