But you were the one who made that nonsense statement. Live with it.

It is not. Only thing that is related to size is the amount of data
needed to read from disk and how much memory that useless data uses.
But no, I don't know whether that accounts to performance at all, and
as I'm not using windows myself, I don't care either. Or otherwise
put: No idea whether the windows9x compatibility stuff that was
removed for example was ifdef 0 ed already, or whether it ended up in
the compiled result..
But just because the one thing doesn't have anything to do with the
other, doesn't make that other part irrelevant.

All I asked for is to not compare apples with oranges. Not more, not less.
So many b*t is written and picked up by others, so don't start it here.

Well, consider me as observer only/ignore me, I surely won't hinder
you from doing your work. But I surely won't just accept any nonsense
written here without commenting.

(as for performance: I myself didn't bother to compare for myself, but
users report that LO feels faster for them, so they are happy, and
that's what counts in the end)
