Strange. I have not tried 2006, but all other accounts I have read from others say the oposite: 2006 should be faster, and boot faster, than 2005.

2006 certainly seems faster for me and its boot time is faster than that of 2005LE and Suse 10 on my machine.

Are you using the official release? Because if you are using one of the betas or an RC, then it may still be slow. I love how fast it boots and how much more responsive the whole OS is now that I've moved to 2006

Do you have Kat running? Kat really eats up cpu cycles and memory, I uninstalled it as I do not need it. They have definitely compressed the boot cycle and maybe it might be a little faster I'm not sure about that though.
