Saw this on the Ubuntu forums.
2 hours to boot to a bash prompt.
Someone has far too much spare time!

I came across this a while ago too, and I think Linus mentioned it briefly in his infamous finger-at-Nvidia talk.

Epic Hack though. That's hack with a capital 'H'. It certainly qualifies as the cheapest way to run Linux!
