does it take to boot?
Becoming very irritated with these "small" Linux distros that take a minute or more to boot. I want my 'media centre' to turn on more or less immediately, like the radio and the TV used to. And I want it to be properly off, as not even powered, when it's off. Like the radio and the TV used to also.
This is well within the capabilities of the hardware, it's more than powerful enough to bring up a fully-functional media centre in milliseconds, but only if you stop using Linux, and start using something designed for that use-case.
