After running this "sudo systemd-analyze blame" please what does it all mean?

The reason I ask it seems much slower booting and running?

You can disable this one, as it is only used by Server edition.

sudo systemctl disable systemd-networkd.service

You can remove snapd to shave this time off, if you are not using any Snap packages.

The times you see are the time taken to reach, not the time that line adds.
The rest of your items you listed are essential and should not be removed or disabled.


Zorin OS does not sacrifice system reliability to speed up boot time like Windows does. The most effective way to reduce boot time is to install the OS on fast storage.


Switch your HDD out with a SSD if possible. You will see considerable improvements.

Hi, it is a SSD the HDD has the remnants of windows on it, it seems very fast one day, then it will crawl to load anything on the same day?

Hi, thanks for the reply. I'll look deeper as it is still going slow?

Well, all is OK, not sure what I have done! did an sudo update and repair, now we are flying along, many thanks.
