systemd for a quicker booting Ubuntu 12.04

systemd is a different method of booting your Linux box, for me it cut my boot time in half!! I had no problems with it, but BE SURE to have a bootcd/usb handy to ubdo the changes to grub if you run into problems.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pitti/systemd

sudo apt-get install systemd libpam-systemd systemd-gui
sudo ln -fs /proc/self/mounts /etc/mtab
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

You need to add a line in the file.. init=/bin/systemd

control-O control-x    to save and exit...
sudo update-grub

Reboot and enjoy....
