Ubuntu Intrepid daily live, 20081022

From the startup process onward, everything you do with an Ubuntu live CD is much slower than the same thing in Ubuntu installed on a hard disk.

People who have not used Ubuntu before may not realize that the slowness is because of the CD, and may think Ubuntu is just very slow in general and therefore not worth using.

One way of addressing this would be to add an explanatory sentence to the startup screen whenever Ubuntu is started from a CD. (Something like, "Ubuntu is slower when running from a CD.")

Another way would be to add an extra animation (perhaps a picture of a slowly spinning CD) to the startup screen when starting up from an optical disc.
