I guess only when we could manage to make AOO booting more multithreaded.

If used every day and quickstarter removed: Only when the first start is
done in the first five minutes (or less) after reboot the office will take
twice to three times as long as with quickstarter, after first start seems
no difference. When booting Win all three days may be acceptable. Remember
that with quickstarter system boot itself takes longer (what would be not
counted on our bill, though :-))

If used occasionally: Implies not used in the first 5 minutes, very small
(if at all) difference for first start, no system boot time and/or
ressources wasted (will the day come users of that type will com,plain
about this...?).
