Agreed. I can't wait for a koffice port to windows (not that I'm using windows - but it would be a good showcase for the potential).

oo.o startup time might get faster over time, but it seems to me (I might have missed something) that they relegate the problem to the compiler. Which means, that they can't or won't to a thing about it in their own code, except for making it compile with gcc 4.x, which has better c++ support. GCC 4's better c++ support will help all c++ projects, including koffice, so in relative terms, there won't be many improvements I guess.
