I wouldn't say that...(maybe many cases)...XP doesn't run every
process in the same memory space in the same fashion that 9x did.
This means that a new thread process occurs in RAM for the app
loading. This protects the OS in case one program crashes, as others
can stay running and the OS can remain stable. Because of this, XP
sometimes takes a bit longer to load apps. It also tries to mix
speed and stability, whereas 98 just tried to be fast.
I used to tell that to others and they kinda shrugged it off. So I'd
constantly load Word and close it and load it and close it, etc.
Guess which OS would start to constantly crash Word over and over
again, and lose valuable system resources? Now guess which one
didn't exhibit the same behavior?

Word also takes advantage of caching on machines too. The first
program load is normally the slowest after initial boot. From then
on, Word and other MS programs are much faster.
Also realize that if you run NoteTab like I do, I expect slower load
times because I have about 20 documents that it has to search for to
build my accessed file list at the top for my tabs.
I can understand the post, but when did 2 seconds become that big a
