Geneva Tax Authorities Distribute Mozilla 1.2.1 to Taxpayers

Saturday February 15th, 2003

The German Heise magazine is reporting that all taxpayers in the Swiss canton of Geneva are being given a CD which includes a French version of Mozilla 1.2.1. The CD also includes GEtax 2002, a tax declaration program, and 1.0.1.

Though the Heise article is in German, a rough English translation is available courtesy of Google. Thanks to johann_p for the news.

I saw you said 13 seconds, so I just reclocked my desktop, under 1.01 in linux its actually 14 seconds to launch on my XP1900 under linux and 4 seconds till the splash screen. Secondary launches take about 3 seconds.

On my laptop with its crappy 4200rpm hard drive its 5 seconds till the splash screen and 19 seconds till it fully open and that's with an old PIII 700. That's with 1.02, with 1.01 on the laptop it was about 2.5 seconds slower.

I'll say again that if OpenOffice take above 40 seconds to launch, use the quicklaunch if your on windows, buy new hardware, or stick with somethign else. I think saying above 30 seconds is the norm is incorrect except for really old machines.
