i can not take this seriously.. on both my laptop and workstation, the
kate window is up in less than a second after i either run kate from a
terminal, or select it in the kde menu..

unless ofcourse you are not using kde, and kate is the first kde
application you start, then it will need to load much more than simply
kate, at which point you cant really say what you are doing, since it
would be somewhat like comparing half of windows's startup time +
ultraedit startup time to kate startup time...
