Thanks Fedora, it's still my choice but boot up speeds?

My first OS was RedHat 6.1 dual booting to win98, and within months, Linux all the way. I've been through 10ish flavors and always returned, then back to RedHat/Fedora since it started its fork in 2003, which is when I began using others. Few compared, but are good for their purpose. Fedora is my choice, and when people ask which is best for beginners, I suggest Fe-x.

My appreciation was how well linux handled the hardware, and boot up times were twice as fast as any winX oss (which I had to use at work). So I sought the faster/light weight versions and kept with e16, and stayed away from newer/heavier wms.

warp speed to now, a new pc, and all things are sorted, except it's boot is slower. How can this be? Primary wm is (and likely will always be) e16, where everything is faster than ever, except the boot up time which is strangely longer by a few seconds.

the fastest it's been was on fedora 15, when it could be completely off, power it up, pass BIOS, (it auto-logged in) and I could open firefox, and hit google in UNDER 10 seconds (8.9seconds).

Now, with all this new hardware, I'm lucky to beat 15 seconds. What happened?! oh, image fails due to my being poor (by 60 points)... woe is me, woe is me. desktop

Your first step is to run systemd-analize blame and edit your question to include the results. Only list those that take at least a second, as the rest don't use enough time to matter.
