How Fast Does Your PC Boot? – Ubuntu Video Advertisement

Illustration and animation for Ubuntu, the free and open source GNU/Linux operating system.

The “How Fast Does Your PC Boot?” video advertisement is part of the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase and still included in each installation of Ubuntu. It was created to point out that Ubuntu 10.10 was able to boot in just 10 seconds.

In the first version of the ad, Henry Mancini’s “It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Shamora)” was used as a soundtrack.

Before the inclusion in the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase, the soundtrack was replaced with an original one.

Wallpaper of a still-rendering is available on deviantART.

The final advertisement has also, recently been recreated with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SVG.
