OpenOffice 3 - Intel Mac OS X.....SLOOOOOWW
I was excited to read that this was released today. I downloaded a Windows version and Mac version to have for distribution at my company. I was excited to install the Mac version with native Aqua support. Very nice integration with the OS. Great job OpenOffice.org!!! One noticeable problem....out of the box....it is SLLLLOOOOWWWW! By default the Java Runtime is enabled in the preferences. I disabled it and it works MUCH better. It's still fairly slow on my black Macbook w/ 1GB RAM and OS 10.4.11. Has anyone else noticed this speed issue?
From Terminal.app $java -version
