Since we have been a bit sloppy on that topic since lucid (or busy with new features) we should aim back at better performances for the lts, that include cpu and memory usage and login time.

See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-boot-speed

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/11.10/BootSpeedAnalysis has boot charts for various releases and comparative charts for lucid vs. oneiric and Dell Mini 10 (reference platform, slow Atom + SSD) vs. ThinkPad X201 (fast quad core + SSD, for identifying unnecessary dependencies)
