It's not all about any speed difference, which with today's hardware is not that much of an issue.
It's about booting directly into a full screen Classic Amiga environment in the fastest time possible, thus turning an old PC box into the closest it can be to a classic Amiga. Also, when it boots Linux or uses the command prompt, it has a full Amiga theme that looks and feels really good.
You may think that's pointless, fair enough, but many think it's rather cool including me.
