I also spoke with the developers while at Lotusphere and they are aware of the performance issues. Their results are 60 seconds from enter to loaded "welcome" screen (through the logon password). They indicate 8.01 will improve this only slightly (about 10%). Another user who was standing there said his results were better but he was running 7200 RPM disk drives, vs the 5400 RPM laptop and many desktop models. The developer said the problem stems from the amount of "stuff" to load from the drive so that faster drives will allow Notes standard to load faster. I believe the other user indicated a 40 second load time, still much slower than the basic version.
Great to hear a PMR is created. WE just need to keep hammering on this to keep the attention focused as that seems to be the only way to get things moving.
