Since it has been fashion to complain about KDE/GNOME faults on LinuxToday lately, I thought it would be worthwhile pointing out that these desktop environments are not the ones that are solely at fault. The fault could just be GNU/Linux. Waldo Bastian has put up a nice little paper concerning the speed issue in KDE, especially the speed of application start up and how the GNU linker is a main bottleneck.
"In this paper I would like to bring the attention to an important performance bottleneck in the ld.so linker on GNU/Linux systems wrt C++ programs. I will try to offer some suggestions for improvement and hope that this paper will lead to a discussion in the GNU/Linux community that eventually will lead to a solution that addresses this problem.
