Compile OO? Didn't follow the thread but the last time I checked OO
needed 2,5 gig disk tmp space to compile and took about 12 hrs on a
900mhz duron with 300 something RAM.Forget about that.Plus depending on
the compiler and flags you might end up with a bigger binary than the
regular one.Unfortunately I don't know about alternatives either.Koffice
and abiword fail miserably here with .doc's that open fine with OO.
