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."

RE: OpenOffice superior

Member since:

The only real reason you give is that it does not support ODF. Considering there are free plugins out there that add ODF support to Office (being developed by Sun, the primary developer of to boot), do you have any other reasons to give for why is "vastly superior"?
