A lot of people seem to forget that they are dealing with a pre-release here, a BETA version.

This means that speed, mem-usage and stability are supposed to be further improved, that is the whole idea of a BETA version!

BETA == Feature-complete (and that's all)

Developers can only test so much, and that is why they release BETA versions, so users can try it out and comment on stuff that needs improvement.

IMHO Flaming about the startup-time of a BETA release is a waste of energy.
