how long does it take ubuntu (or any other linux OS) to boot up on your laptop?

Just wondering as laptop hard drives are not as fast as there desktop counterparts, and was wondering if there was any tips on speeding up ubuntu or any distro's that run faster

it currently takes me 50 secs from a cold start

Within 10-20 secs on the 3 year old desktop computer for me.

It has a 3200+ AMD Athon 64-bit processor.

About 12-15 seconds before login and an additional 12 afterwards for Ubuntu
Vista altogether is ~45s to 1min.
