Why do you feel it's going to flop?


Because OOO is already a total and utter slow mess on desktops - let alone on phones and tablets through a goddamn browser.

Libreoffice runs noticeably faster on my Athlon XP 2400+ with 512MB RAM than OO.org ever did. I think they can make it work - and on Android, their use of Java isn't really a penalty since the Dalvik VM is running all the time.

Have you tried recent releases of OO and LO ? There have been big improvements with OpenOffice 3 and later on my computer. Modern LibreOffice now shows up and loads most of my text documents in a matter of seconds, only big powerpoints can still take some time.

This is LibreOffice, not OOO.

LibreOffice is a couple of times faster than OOO. On the same machine, the order of speed would be:

LibreOffice > MS Office > OpenOffice.org
