Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y George Ou compares Microsoft Office 2007 to OpenOffice 2.2 in memory and CPU usage using the OOXML and ODF file formats. The conclusion according to Ou: "We can see that the OpenOffice.org ODF XML parser (while vastly improved) is still about 5 times slower than Microsoft's OOXML parser. OpenOffice.org also seems to consume nearly 4 times the amount of RAM to hold the same data. While OpenOffice.org continues to have fewer features than Microsoft Office, it continues to consume far more resources than Microsoft."

Office preloads a base when it's installed on Win2k/XP and presumably Vista.

If you don't bother to read the Registries that is your problem.

Once again - no proof. I always keep track on whats starting on my system and I have never seen an Office preloader yet...

Can you provide details: what is the process name?

There is a fair amount of MS Office functionality built right in the the core of Windows, but if you want a reference for a specific-to-Office preloader, then the name of that is "Office Startup Assistant".

Program name is osa.exe
