I don't see what the huge deal is, open office 1.1.5 flies on startup. Maybe the distro underneath is slowing things down. I just did a cold start of 1.1.5, on Slackware 10.1 (using xfce), on an AMD64 mobile turion (1.6ghz), 512mb, and it took 1-3 seconds. A warm start is nearly instant.
What's the big deal people?
