Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y George Ou compares Microsoft Office 2007 to OpenOffice 2.2 in memory and CPU usage using the OOXML and ODF file formats. The conclusion according to Ou: "We can see that the ODF XML parser (while vastly improved) is still about 5 times slower than Microsoft's OOXML parser. also seems to consume nearly 4 times the amount of RAM to hold the same data. While continues to have fewer features than Microsoft Office, it continues to consume far more resources than Microsoft."

Since when does GTK+ only run under X11? I use it under Windows all the time, and as far as I know, GTK+ has been ported to OS X as well.

(I use OS X, but no longer use OOo. MS Office 2004 and Google Docs do everything I need).
