Yes, really enjoyed part 1, looking forward to 2 and 3 with intrigue!
I recently booted up clear linux for the first time and fell off my chair,
it is really quick. Ok, it has nothing running (almost) on first boot, but
wasn’t expecting it to be as firmware/appliance like in its startup.
At the moment there are a few bits of info in the internet but nothing
really deep and technical that provides a full overview of what the team did
and the low level architecture differences from say ubuntu or redhat, is
this something you guys can provide?
All the patches ( for boot time and more ) are public in GitHub repos,
in the case of Linux kernel is here:
(from smp patches that avoid recalibrating of tsc to tightening sleep ranges)
I would love to explain them in a proper blog if you could wait for a bit more
you can also take a deep look of our boot process at your bootchart

Thanks a lot for your interest in part 2 and 3 of behind the magic series ,
I hope you have liked part 1. I have the draft in my notebook of part 2
about profile guided optimizations, hopefully in 2 weeks might be published
Also this week might be published a blog about gcc 8 and its benefits.
As soon as these get publish I will send a mail to you and the mailing list
