Use dash

By enabling dash as the default shell, I shaved 1 second of the boot time. This isn't much (5%), but still remarkable for such a small change.

How to enable it?

  • install dash: apt-get install dash

  • make dash the default shell: dpkg-reconfigure dash, and answer yes if you want dash to be /bin/sh.

  • reboot

Bootchart with dash

Just to be sure, I'm also attaching my bootchart.
