Ubuntu Light Boots Like Greased Lightning

"It joins Splashtop, HyperSpace, and other light weight Linux distributions in this space. It isn’t meant to completely replace your primary operating system. Instead, you can load it up on a dual boot system, so you have the choice of loading Ubuntu Light and launching your web browser in just a few seconds, or loading up your full desktop operating system for more resource-intensive tasks."

Hooray for faster booting systems! I am sure that a lot of people use sleep or hibernate, but there are still times when you want a fresh boot, or just shut down their computers as a force of habit, like me. I do not know if they include POST in the boot time, but even without it, 7 seconds is quite impressive. However, reading through things, there is one major downside. You cannot install any additional programs! Still, in this cloud connected world, does that really matter?
