does having the OS on a memory car help?
I was just looking at the sandisk 8GB SD Memory Cards
(since I keep my media files on an external drive anyways)
nevermind on the linux, cnetrafuse dosn't work on it, eevn with wine
edit: seems like SD or SF is not a good solution either...
ubuntu 9.04 boots in < 30 seconds from post stock without any optimizations on my atom 330 board. LinuxICE2 (pre-alpha) is currently based on 9.04.
Moblin 2.0 Beta boots in ~20 seconds on my atom 270(?) acer aspire from post, will probably boot in 10-15s on the atom 330 (is my guess).
Moblin is trying to get boots to < 10s ("about 5s" is what they say), Ubuntu is trying to do the same for 9.10.
Centrafuse's boon and bane: Windows XP. You are just too limited on what you can do to speed things up. CE would boot faster, but good luck getting a copy. Windows 7 may be the boon that everyone is been hoping for though...
Who knows, maybe CF3 may be emulatable?
The OpenICE team is working hard on getting a good, free alternative going on the Linux side. nGhost3 should be able to compete with SD2 and CF3 on many levels.

Why not just hibernate? I hibernate in 5-10 seconds, and resume in <15 with windows. That's with a P4 2.6 with 1gb of ram and a 5400rpm drive.

I've got a P4 2.0 Ghz and 1GB of RAM. Hibernate isn't working for me right now (touchscreen issues) so I shutdown and boot every time.
Boots in about 30-40 seconds and a few more seconds to hear music.
Hard drive is a 200GB IDE with 8MB cache - nothing special. OS is XP SP2 that has been lightened up using XP Lite (I think thats what its called). It allows you to remove unwanted features after a clean install and put them back later if needed.
My boot times improved a lot by spending some quality time in the BIOS and figuring out what options made it faster. For me disabling legacy USB, and turning off "Auto" detection of hard drives on unused channels made a big difference.

Hibernate is good for those board that support it. Else, a fast disk is strongly underrated.
A good SSD is expensive, but think about all the frustration you leave behind...
I want my system to be ready, when I have cranked the engine and fasten my seatbelt... Not when I'm halfway to work...
My hibernation use to be super fast like <10sec. Now it takes like 20ish+ every since I hooked up my usb hub and stuff. Weird.
