Open OpenOffice. Close OpenOffice. Open it again. If you have
sufficient memory [cached pages didn't get dropped] the second time you
open it is *much* faster.

Or better still ...

Open OpenOffice. Close OpenOffice.
Open Gimp. Edit some pictures. Leave gimp open.
Open Firefox. Opps, you had 45 tabs with lots of graphics when you
last shut it down. Let them all come up. Leave firefox open.
Open KMail. No, not Thundrebird, it has some shared libraries with
Firefox. You're running under Gnome, right? So Kmail has to drag in a
lot of KDE libraries as well.
Play some Windows based game. That requires starting up VMware and a
virtual Windows. Suspend the game but don't shut it down.
Go back to Kmail and start composing some mail using a external HTML
editor. Don't shut that down either.

Now open OpenOffice again.
If it doesn't start up immediately because the shared libraries haven't
been paged out then you don't have enough RAM.

RAM is cheap.
