|I think one part of their problem is with things that use a lot of Python eg Fedora and Open Office (also slow). Apparently Open Office contains its own custom python interpreter. Python may be fashionable, look nice and have a lot of white space, but it runs as slow as a wet week.|
OpenOffice.org uses UNO, so it can interface with python (but uses relatively few python extensions.). However, the biggest bottleneck in OOo is the requirement of Java to run. In any case, python certainly executes faster than bash, or any other *nix shell.
What would be really interesting would be if there was some list of minimalist applications available somewhere (as, oftentimes I'm forced to develop/hack on my own.)
eTower 566.12, 32MB RAM, 7GB HD, 200MB swap, 1x USB v.1, Intel 810GFX, Intel 810 Audio.
Recompiled so far: Pretty much everything. I think I'll have to do a remaster to cut the growing bloat off my system.
