In this video, you can see the olpc boot in about 10 seconds, the first boot is linuxbios loading a kernel from the BIOS FLASH part (no disk!), then you can see the pretty OLPC boot icons. By the time you see the boot icons, Linux has been up and running for some time -- it takes longer for the USB to be ready than for LinuxBIOS to boot Linux. Next, I hit return and you can see it boot another kernel. Again, the big delay is waiting for the all-solid-state USB key to be ready. USB storage keys take over twice as long as IDE hard disk drives to be accessible -- 10 seconds BEST case as opposed to 4 seconds WORST case for IDE.
