Ubuntu community always come up with some creative ideas as they are already having an awesome platform to implement them. Thru Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase, users of Ubuntu Community can submit videos, photos etc to showcase their work to the whole community. Goce Mitevski submitted an awesome video showing Ubuntu 10.04 boot time less than 10 seconds. I totally agree with this video and you will be surprised by booting Ubuntu on your current system configuration. It really boots much faster than Windows.
