"Fine, let's compare it to MS Word or Wordperfect on Linux. They also load at a fraction of Mozilla."

Okay, if you're going to do that, then I will. You know what? Mozilla loads a *lot* faster than Photoshop. Both are totally irrelevant to the situation at hand.

"Also, I've removed the exe that loads the IE libs from the startup sequence, and IE is still way faster to startup."

What, you removed c:\windows\explorer.exe? Then your system wouldn't function. IE DLLs are still being loaded.

"Maybe getting rid of superflous things like splash screen would speed it up."

The splash screen itself is a bitmap - there is no slowdown as a result of the splash screen. If you think a smaller bitmap would load faster, why don't you just make a little 16x16 image with MSPaint and put it in with the mozilla.exe directory and call it mozilla.bmp. No difference.
