>From Jakub's 2004 paper on prelink, I see that it saves 1-2 seconds in
startup time for openoffice swriter. Half a second or less on kword,
konqueror, evolution, and epiphany. As computers get faster, prelink will
still save relative time, but the absolute difference will become less and
less perceptible. I know a second here and there adds up, but given the
downsides, sooner or later prelink should be revisited.
