Is Faster the better?

How fast is fast enough?

No Doubt faster is better, but how fast is fast enough is based on the perception of a person using it.

Perception or Expectations can be manipulated take an example
When we see a sign board saying "Work In Progress", it implies "Inconvenience for us"
But the feelings become positive when the sign board says "Please be patient, We are working towards a world class experience"

There will always be some activities which will take time (like transferring a file, fetching a report with lots of records etc). We have three choices to handle the situation

a) Let the user wait till the time the activity completes.
b) Show an Innovative message to the user (with a status bar for file sending) and ask him to wait till the activity completes.
c) Run the process in background and let the user perform something else, till the process completes.[show relevant messages as well]
