On an old 128Mb Win98 computer, MS Word 97 opens pretty much instantly, whereas OOo 1.1.4 takes a good minute in Linux. Low-end computers are kinda nice that way for illuminating speed differences.
Hrm, the OOo startup-time answer discouraged me even more from hoping for improvements anytime soon What's this about KOffice being available for Windows soon?
Nice comparison. An almost 10 year old program running on Windows (most likely older version of Windows I'm assuming) compared to a less than 1 year old program running on an entirely different OS (most likely not a distro from that long ago either). You should be a scientist ;-)
I know that OOo has horrible startup times...but seriously, at least try to be objective and neutral when posting.
