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.
