Some of the time difference, of course, would depend on how many
fonts each user is loading at startup. After I ordered some
additional fonts from Bitstream a couple years ago and installed
them, the loading time increased markedly (of course, that was
on a 16MZ 386SX, too). So I deleted most of them, and some
others too, and copy them back only on the infrequent occasions
when I need them. On my Pentium 75, XyDOS loads in less than
five seconds.
