Maybe I’m dumb and I missed it, but I hadn’t seen Lorenzo Colitti’s analysis of GNOME startup time mentioned anywhere. Well worth reading.

Why, it’s obvious! The analysis wasn’t mentioned anywhere because it hasn’t been written yet — the “last updated date” explicitly says 2005-10-19, i.e. two weeks from now. It’s only some glitch in the space-time continuum that lets us peek at this not-written-yet document now.
Yes yes yes! I wish I was a coder as I think a lot of work needs to go into Gnome memory and I/O optimisation. The underlying [Linux Unix] kernel and filesystems are blindingly fast but once Gnome is stacked on top a fast system suddenly seems inadequate.
Given that a lot of target installations for Gnome are recycled PCs this is clearly not ideal!
Having said that I do love Gnome and use it exclusively on all of my computers, an am optimistic for its future.
Ok, ok, cut me some slack, I have a paper deadline on Sunday and my sense of time is rather flexible at the moment!
I’ll be at the GNOME summit in Boston though, hacking on this. So if anyone wants to ping me / work with me there, feel free!
