I just tried a cold startup of OO writer 1.1.4 and it took about 9 seconds to being ready for text input.

While that may be "slow", I don't see anything less than about 20 seconds as a real problem. Heck, I remember the days of single sided floppies. One minute load times were normal. What is important to me is the percieved speed once you start *using* the app.

P4 mobile 1.8 Ghz
384 MB RAM
Windows 2000
also had MS Outlook 2003 and Firefox running during the test.
