It's just my Linux test laptop, a DELL Latitude C810, 503.7MB RAM, Pentium
III Mobile, 1133MHz, Ubuntu Linux 7.10.
I don't want to upgrade this old computer and did not expect scribus to be
very fast on it.

My intention is to tell, that any software that loads all pictures as
bitmaps into memory will get very slow when either you have a slow machine,
a large book or many large pictures.
Images should only be loaded when needed, this would scale much better.
