Has anyone tried Open Office?

I tried Open Office (briefly) and didn't like its abyssal slowness.  It takes 
more than thirty seconds between the moment you start it and the moment you 
get a splash screen 'that means user will think he didn't click properlyand 
will restart it.   Then splash screen disappears and it takes another thirty 
seconds or so until it opens window.  This was on a K6-2/450 and seemed a CPU 
not memory problem.   Once started it didn't seem particularly responsive.

Has anyone had more positive experiences?    I fear OpenOffice derives into 
another mozilla: a developers project where little thought is given to making 
product half usable.
