Tight Integration

I think that both Microsoft Office and koffice have a bit of an advantage of being more tightly integrated with libraries that make up their respective underlying graphical environments. You do get an opportunity to do some unconventional hacks when you have that characteristic in your system to your advantage. The best OO.o can hope for with that regard is to do good, old-fashioned pre-loading.

Additionally OpenOffice.org is a monolithic application whereas Word is separate to Excel.
