Time to Boot

Last weekend, my friend Andrés Monroy-Hernández pointed out something that I've been noticing as well. Although the last decade has seen a huge decrease in the time of it takes to boot, the same can not be said for the increasing powerful computer in my pocket that is my phone.

As the graph indicates, I think my cross-over was around 2010 when I acquired an SSD for my laptop.
