It is said that linking /bin/sh to dash instead of bash should speed up
the boot process. The Debian Way to do this is:
dpkg-divert --add /bin/sh
ln -si /bin/dash /bin/sh
I have this on my own system, but never tested if it's actually faster.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
