Is Ubuntu boot time slow?

A few weeks ago, I complained about one of my machines running Ubuntu taking a very long time to boot. It certainly felt long, like a good 3 minutes, but since I wasn't measuring it, I couldn't tell for sure. This time, I decided to put it to a live test.

Turns out it wasn't as bad as I thought, but also definitely not fast by any standards today. What could be causing this slowdown?

I should probably do a writeup later on why am I running Ubuntu on that machine in first place, if it's not performing to my requirements. Without going in too many details: Secure Boot. More to come on this one later, though.
