Server - Never
Boot time for servers do matter for systems where "uptime" is a
measured amount and it matters for service contracts. So reducing
the boot time from 5 minutes to 1 minute means real money for these
providers and is something that everyone should be happy about.
Only if they have an SLA that mandates _severe_ penalties when not
met. Have you studied any decent SLAs recently? They're often not
worth the paper or screen they're written on.
Besides - a 30min outage per annum equates to an uptime of 99.998%.
A boot time reduction from 5 to 1min is unlikely to make much of a
dent in that, IMHO.
