    It's a bit slow. Have you presses Esc. during boot to see if there are any errors that indicate what may be slowing it?

    If this is a new install it should be OK. Processes that might slow things down normally only affect the machine in normal use, not at boot. We often advise deleting beagle for this reason.

    Slow to boot issues are more likely drivers loading. It's possible there may be some indicators in .xsession-errors
