Well, but that was a rather rough-shot reply, and your reply to that
(if it was valid) was quite important, so for now it seems he doesn't have
too much of a point here. Not to mention that application startup time
still *is* a bottleneck on Linux, so there should be more effort to
reduce that. I want to keep using my 450MHz box for some more decades ;)

BTW, did you do some oprofile runs of app startup?

No programming skills!? Why not help translate many Linux applications!
