But what makes a Linux OS to be called the most desired one? There are many factors that institute this question. The experience, the user-friendly attitude, knowledge in troubleshooting and the most important one, the boot time.  If your much hyped OS takes too much time to boot, then mostly that OS will be toasted in the market.  Every user assures on one thing and that is the boot time. Better the boot time, then better will be the OS. So without further adieu, let’s take a look at the five fastest booting Linux distributions.

1: Boot time!?!? This is not a good argument for a linux OS. I have not booted my PC since it was installed a year ago. What good is picking a fast booting OS if you only do it once?

Boot time reflects how bulky the OS is, and for a given hardware configuration how long it will take. A light weighted OS saves not only on Boot time, it consumes less of your hardware requirements leaving it free for other applications. Simply put - more worth for your money ( In open source case, FREE).

Try loading an application on same hardware configuration with different OS. (seeing is believing)
