I wonder if all this is because of theming in general or specific 
(default) theme used? The menu has nice border made of few lines maybe 
theming code draws them one by one? Maybe some simple theme without all 
the fancy eye candy can be substantively faster? Or maybe not, who knows.

I too find the UI responsiveness a bit slow. And application startup is 
a bit slow too. Even older iPAQ 3870 with OPIE was faster (and it was 
slow too comparing to Palm). 2 seconds for Calculator to start on N770 
is not exactly fast.

Is it GTK or dynamic linker or dbus or launcher?
