Startup time

On an old 128Mb Win98 computer, MS Word 97 opens pretty much instantly, whereas OOo 1.1.4 takes a good minute in Linux. Low-end computers are kinda nice that way for illuminating speed differences.

Hrm, the OOo startup-time answer discouraged me even more from hoping for improvements anytime soon ;) What's this about KOffice being available for Windows soon?
