I am on F13, with latest updates as of yeaterday.
Even when load fact is 0.3 or 0.5,  opening most gui applications
takes up to 30 seconds and on some occasions, a little more.
Applications like OpenOffice, ktorrent, Seamonkey, Amarok...etc.
Laptop has 7200 rpm drive (ext3 fs), 2GB ram.
This is the case even right after booting.
I do recall that things were noticeably quicker to start on much
older redhat releases, like redhat 3.0, and even on linux'es prior
to redhat.
But then the GUI apps at that time might not have been so incredibly bloated
as they are today.
