I also respect other's opinions, especially in the light of your
last line. What I should have clarified here is :

If you have a math co-processor, SkyMap is only marginally slower
than QuickSat.

And if you do not have a telescope/binocular/camera mount with 
setting circles, and need to plot the predictions on a star chart,
QuickSat + manual plotting should be slower and less accurate.
