Bootup speed for F8

Hi folks,

I've currently upgraded to F8, congrats!

Just thought of sharing a data-point for startup speed
(measured from GRUB, so excluding all the BIOS stuff):
  * to graphical init: 30s
  * to login prompt: 1m8s
  * after login, to responsive state: 14s

That's 1m22s to start. On a good desktop: Intel Duo 2.13GHz, 2GB RAM.
With the BIOS thrown in, it takes over 2minutes to be able to get
into the box.

That's rather slow, no?
