TDE - *as it stands* - therefore boots up in a reasonable amount of time, applications start up in a reasonable amount of time, and KOffice is, for example, extremely useable. TDE basically, because it has *NOT* quotes moved forward quotes, is perfectly matched for the capacity and capabilities of low-power systems. l.
