I have to say 3 really turned it around as far as I am concerned it was a big leap forward in usability and speed and I really look forward to trying 3.1 out. Thanks to everyone that made this possible.

To be fair it was 2.4ish that they got rid of that horrible slow startup. Interestingly they have got rid of the speadsheet slowness, not something I have experienced myself, but those who seem to know how to find faults point it out.
