Intel aims for 2-second boot time with Moblin

Posted on Friday, April 10 2009 @ 01:23:13 CEST by

Intel said at the Linux Collaboration Summit in San Francisco that it aims to achieve a two second bootup time with its Moblin Linux platform. The chip giant believes a fast startup time is critical for making Moblin an appropriate platform for embedded car computers and many other embedded applications.
At the Linux Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, Intel Open Source Technology Center director Imhad Sousou discussed the company's plans for the next major version of its Linux-based open source Moblin platform. The aim of Moblin, Sousou says, is to improve the quality of the Linux user experience on Atom-based devices. For Intel, this is a broad mandate that reaches deep into the platform and will require improvements at many different layers of the stack. One especially important aspect of Intel's platform improvement agenda is to reduce overall startup time.

Tests of the latest Moblin 2 alpha release show that the major components of the stack, including the graphics system, can start up in mere seconds. Intel intends to build on this effort and hopes to eventually reduce total startup time to two seconds.
