Agreed. Microsoft Office apps load in a few seconds under WINE -- so it's not about the kernel, the filesystem or any such thing. It's simply bloated, slow and inelegantly coded.
Great office suite, mind, but the comically slow startup time doesn't impress newcomers. I don't like showing people OOo because they all say "Why is it taking so long to start?" and they think it's sloppily written.
