For it to have started that quickly:

You had to have almost everything already in disk cache. Perhaps you had loaded it earlier?

Perhaps Slackware includes the open office quick starter preload program?

Or possibly your Slackware doesn't include Java support, in which case you cannot use macros.

On my Fedora 9, Athlon XP 2000 with 512 MB RAM and a pair of RAID-0 15k SCSI drives it takes 15 seconds from cold start.

Not really. Just disable Java and it will load twice as fast.

Afaik, java is not launched immediately in OO.org. except if you run the database module or if you have a java realted plugin.

also, if you install the Java 6 update 10 release candidate, it (java) starts up very very fast.
