Compared to a simple but unoptimized boot it's blindingly fast.

Ten seconds from reset to user space is also pretty good in
terms of the user experience, although I think most users would
prefer something like half that, when using this system as a
boot switch/loader.

It's basically the same question as "how long would you like to
wait for the boot menu" ?
