Yes but the plumber hasn't heard stories about how the toilet screws up for 4 years straight before coming over. Hasn't someone already tried to locate the problem in the past 4 years and failed?

Tried the same script on lubuntu, just as slow actually. I think ghostscript is the bottleneck.

Why would I pay when no one apparently knows what the problem is?

Plotting is extremely usable in most GNU/Linux environments, which is
where Octave is primarily developed.

If spending money to fix this problem is an option, would you consider
paying a developer to work on improving Octave's plotting performance in
Windows? See


well, to be fair your plumber doesn't know the problem when you call him with a flooded basement, but he's still going to bill you for the time spent finding the problem.
