Start-up Speeds

"So I did a few simple tests to compare it with other distros.
I used the same PC, the same HDD and all the distros had a similar load of applications installed, with the exception of Windows XP which was lightly loaded.
All Puppys were Frugal installs except for one Full install where noted.
I measured the time between selecting the distro from the grub boot screen and when the desktop had loaded and I could start loading an application.
Also for the distros that needed a user-name and password to be entered I had to judge the time it took to do this and subtract from the timing.
Before anyone says it I am aware that some distros (eg Windows) offer a full desktop and can start loading apps even when a lot of activity is still happening "under the surface". I had no way to judge this so have had to ignore it." davesurrey
