You can turn off all nonessential services. There is also a parallel startup possible. Is that upstart?

Custom kernel, have your modules built into it.  No initrd.  
Not that I've done any of this myself.  My eee, that doesn't work much, will boot in 8 seconds.

I was reading about complaints on boot time with windows 7 (talk of it eventually degrading to taking 6 minutes to boot) and it got me thinking.

Is there anything in linux that folks do to decrease boot time?  Specifically the desktop because of course I only reboot my webservers every few years when we're doing something hardware related.
