	Are you serious that on your system; from cold you get a sub 1 second

I'm assuming of course that you've used a fair number of Gnome apps -
and thus that there are a good number of tiny scattered files in

	Either way - the performance is directly related to seek time, and
almost nothing to do with read time. It's interesting that my hdparm
measures read time, but not avg./worst case seek times - is there a good
way for people to measure that easily - so we can correlate it with
their times ?
