Compare to earlier ubuntu versions karmic is much better in speed but if you still want to reduce your boot times even more, you can use ubuntu boot packages containing instrumentation to aid in boot performance work, and packages proposed to improve performance.

Note:- Install these packages with your own risk and this might break your system

At the moment this packages are available to only ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) users

First you need to run the following command from your terminal to add sources list

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-boot/ppa

Now update the source list

sudo apt-get update

Install using the following command

sudo apt-dist upgrade

This will install all the remaining required packages. After installing this your boot times should be much faster.
