Many Linux apps run under GTK or TCL/TK... both implementations of which are relatively slow.
The fact that your son notices NS6 running seemingly sluggish under Windows IS BECAUSE OF XUL!!!
Have your son run NS 4.08... or IE for that matter... and compare the difference.
Those UI's are *native* to the OS and perform well... NS6 can *NEVER* do the same regardless of how many developers attempt to optimize it.
You (or whoever) wanted an XP UI... now you got it... and unfortunatley many will pay the price for it.
Wish I had better new for ya, Mike. :(
