Still to slow to start, still to memory hungry.

Not here. It took 5 seconds for the initial start (to get to the registration screens, etc., and 1 second thereafter. Much faster even than 2.4.1.

I'm running Vector Linux 5.9 on a Mobile AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3300+ (32 bit OS) with 1GB RAM. I used the SlackBuild version for Slackware 12.1.

For it to have started that quickly:

You had to have almost everything already in disk cache. Perhaps you had loaded it earlier?

Perhaps Slackware includes the open office quick starter preload program?

Or possibly your Slackware doesn't include Java support, in which case you cannot use macros.

On my Fedora 9, Athlon XP 2000 with 512 MB RAM and a pair of RAID-0 15k SCSI drives it takes 15 seconds from cold start.

Care to share -numbers- (as opposed to spreading FUD?)
