Speed up xubuntu by using more memory?

I heard somewhere that big linux programs have to load and calculate and 
create links to library's every time they start. This is one of the 
reasons why openoffice is so slow.

If it is possible to create a system that pre calculate these links and 
put them in a table that is loaded in the memory. It could be possible 
to speed up almost al linux programs especially the big ones.

You can use some thing like the updatedb an locate commands to gather al 
the dependencies of links for starting programs.

Maybe this will bring on a light to some guru. And create a innovative 
speed up system.

Maybe someone knows someone that have more knowledges about these thinks 
and give him this idea.
