It is every single user's first experience with the device though.
Every time it is demo-ed in front of anyone, their first vibe for what
the device is like is coming out of the boot action.
Two minutes is a LOOOONG time,,,
,,,and it is like it is because it's out of control, with a single
thread of startups all blocking each other, even with sleep() in there.
We can definitely change this into something much better, and we should
- -- because other folks making similar products aren't going to accept
this kind of performance.
