No offense meant, but this is utter nonsense.
It's the same with windows. A completely new install is very fast to boot. But as you continually add data to your your system slows down on the booting.
The only thing that MAY slow down the boot-process is
running ldconfig ... the more libraries you install, the longer
it will take to build the /etc/ld.so.cache . Has nothing to do
with data, though.
