    OEM GPS (embedded)
    nLite WinXP pro on

    Well I think that depends on your memory size and CPU speed.
    .NET uses GDI+ (wich is very slow) for drawing controls and a transparent control takes more resources to draw (you don't notice this with one or two labesl, but when the size increses this becomes noticable).

    I have a pretty decent development machine and your right after a a few trans. labels on a machine there's a bit of a lag when the app loads.

    Perhaps you can use a lighter-weight toolkit?
