Fedora15 Desktops and Systemd

Two general questions about Fedora 15 before I decide to install.

My system typically starts in about 32 seconds, with a distro using normal boot scripts.
With Ubuntu and upstart it reaches the gdm login screen quicker in around 18 - 24 seconds.

With systemd does anyone get a noticeable difference?

Also, is it possible to use an alternative desktop to gnome3 in Fedora 15. I've tried Gnome3
with Arch and its very slick although not for me, as I like panels and desktop applets.

( I should add that my times quoted were mesaured using bootchart with a default set of
services, no tweaking).

Thanks in advance

For me, the start-up feels faster with systemd, however I don't have any numbers.

An alternative desktop could be KDE or LXDE.

you could possibly use or download bootchart from the fedora repo and compare the boot times to your F14 install

There are a variety of desktops and/or window managers you can use with Fedora. Pretty much any of them that are out there will work.
