My first post is my shame.
I must patch it with (hopefully) correct English and reply to myself.
> I don't know if somebody will read this...
I still wonder and waiting for advice.
> Is there something like was proposed on <http://www.levien.com/fps.html>?
Yes. It seems to me yes, there is, and name for that is Gnome Bounties
Anyway I don't know why on modern notebook PC all desktop is even slower than
I felt it on win16-win95-xfree3+rh62.
Discovering LISP myself with help of Emacs, Paul Graham, and others, then
seeing traces of it in modern python-based projects (f.e Twisted, with it's
banana protocol), I still wonder why all is that, as it is ? And "XML
optimisation" isn't a way <http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php?soft_id=1397>.
IMHO HTML, XHTML and other brain-damaging "technologies" with it's XML are
broken by design.
Why world doesn't have any usable computer and OS with it ? Only home-wifes with
ready-to-use-get-the-facts toasters and technicians with 1-2GHz FSB,
Gigabit ethernet, 21" screen oscilloscopes ?
I can't buy one even on cost of new excellent car !
I'm deeply disappointed...
 IMHO PDF, as published by Adobe, is current best solution for every type of
documents -- online or offline. PDF is not craft of html,css,gif,flash or whatever !
And Xpdf software on linux-gnu is an excellent proof of good style of layout
(comparing to Adobe's software and hance PDF spec.), vs. having Gecko/KHTML/gtkhtml...
Dot-coms crashed, but consequences remain: web standardisation is a crap, home-grew
"specialists" in web-design-programming with flash ads. with dot.com's like business
models are everywhere.
 Originally IBM opened architecture of IBM PC. So why many of modern hardware is
being closed by manufacturers, that use this IBM's concept ?
 IMHO. There're a lot of good ides, but very few of them have correct implementation
and wide usage...

.. by design...
And thank You, all !
[I've finished physics department in one of the post-soviet countries. Now
I really want to have chance to study CS. But it seems like technical progress
had stopped in 80's on USSR(well, something is developing, but inside of black,
military closed boxes), computer science and application progress (in software)
had stopped on time even prior to dot-coms.]
