The car doesn't start more slowly because of power airbags.
Of course it does, Newton proved that about 350 years ago. ;-)
The trick with optimization is knowing *what* to optimize. Most of the complaining about bloated and slow software is meaningless nonsense, it's like complaining that the tires of the average truck are so much bigger than my own car's -- and MY car runs fine, you know.
