“Can we say fast performance?”

Scoble says "Can we say fast performance?" about MSN Spaces. Um, no. Most comments I've seen on the service say it's slow. It is slow. Having a killer datacenter doesn't make something fast. MSN should have the talent and resources it takes to make this thing fast, and yet, it's slow. I'd love to know why.

Update: Scoble said in a comment that there was hardware trouble making it slow, and it does seem to be faster now. Fast enough to not be painful to use. It's still slower than LiveJournal and Blogger.com, though.
