I haven't try to install openoffice from the binaries on openoffice.org
for a long time. But I do use the .debs.
And I must I find OpenOffice rather slow, not only does it take a while
to start up, which I find a minor issue. But once started up it 's not
fast either. I run it on a pentium III 667 mhz and sometimes m$ office
97 on a pentium 200 mhz seems to run smoother.
Specifically the menu's work rather slow when I move my mouse over it
they react slow.
