    In the Upstart era they argued that dash would improve the boot process and it did.

    --Yeeeeah, that change from 14 years ago should probably be revisited these days. With modern disks being orders of magnitude faster than what we had back then. They could probably optimize bash a bit, or strip out the interactive parts to make the file size smaller, or simply copy it to RAM disk and call it from there for the bootup stuff. Which is less of a consideration these days anyway, because now we have systemd wanting to be like the MCP from TRON.

    But Ubuntu runs off a Rasberry Pi with microSD for storage. The Canonical teams should always remember that. Not everyone has a Core i7 with 64G of RAM and a $550 GPU.
