I typically look again when I upgrade my machine.

Right now, my main machine is a 650 Mhz. Dell Inspiron laptop.  On this 
machine, using WindowMaker, everything is up and ready, complete with 
NeXTSTEP-like look and feel, approximately one second after hitting the 
"Enter" key on the login panel.  Yes, that's _one_ second!  And on a 650 
Mhz. machine!

Memory usage is also similarly dramatically lower.

I don't know how the WindowMaker folks did it, but I am impressed!
