Just when you think... It can't get any faster.... It does!
This has definitely snappied up my machine, wot!
For example, I have gkrellm and krusader both set to start automatically at login.
Before prelink, krusader would show up and a few seconds later gkrellm started.
Now, they *both* startup and the same time, and much sooner as well.
Everything seems to start up quicker.
