From a USB memory in VFAT, it seems to be able to do 13MB/sec or such.
And, Linux uses free memory space as file buffer cache (and OLPC
will have some memory-based filesystem (tmpfs). If I read a file from
cached data, Squeak can do over 70MB/sec.
Our MPEGPlayer seems to spend so much time on updating sliders and
buttons and invisible subtitle. Only about 60% of time seems to be
spent for decoding (about 30%) and displaying (about 30%). We could
do some more optimization.
