Windows 7: Opening files in Office 2010 slow!

Opening files in Office 2010 slow!

Hi, I'm so annoyed with Office 2010's stupid splash screen which comes up every time you open a Word, PowerPoint, and Excel file. It seems to add like 1 second to the opening time of the file. It is getting so annoying that I'm considering switching to Office 2007 for good.

How can Microsoft make an Office suite which opens files slower than the previous version?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM
 
 

Do you have the RTM?
The beta version downloads (click to run) the software as you need it each time.

WOW! and I thought I was impatient. I get the splash screen in 2007 as well but it's gone in a flash.

Lol its just that when I've paid 700 for a laptop and with Office 2007 installed opening files is very quick. So as you can imagine, Office 2010 comes along and opens files slower than in the older version! I'm surprised there's not more people complaining about this! That leaves me with the question: is it just me? lol
