Features, Office "The OpenOffice.org Community announce the release of OpenOffice.org 2.2, the latest version of the leading open-source office suite. With upgrades to its word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, and database software, the free software package provides a real alternative to Microsoft's recently-released Office 2007 product - and an easier upgrade path for existing Microsoft Office users. OpenOffice.org 2.2 also protects users from newly discovered vulnerabilities, where users' PCs could be open to attack if they opened documents from, or accessed web sites set up by, malicious individuals."

Does it start any quicker??

the startup speed is really an issue for me, as I do have some slightly older hardware...

I wonder how much of it is due to the craptacular code generation of g++, beacuse when I run it on Solaris x86, I don't see the speed issues I saw on Ubuntu Linux and Fedora 6.

The Novell team working on OOo speed have submitted a few patches to GCC to improve startup performance.

If you have Java enabled in OOo, disabling it will increase startup speed considerably. Also, on Linux you can add ooffice -quickstart -nologo -nodefault to your startup session for faster loading/creating of OOo documents.
