Also keep in mind the impact of multi-core.  In theory multi-core
systems should be less slow at system start, since it could run the
AOO quickstart task in parallel with other start up tasks. However,
without quick start, the normal startup of AOO does not take advantage
of multi-core.  So I'd expect a greater performance boast with modern

But from user's perspective, I think the benefit depends on whether
AOO is a key tool that they use several times a day, every day.  Or
whether it is something they use only occasionally.
