Open Office Vs Wine WORD
Im in the process of trying to convince a number of people to switch to linux based desktop systems from MS. One of the major tasks is obviously word processing using MS Word. Ive Installed Open Office, which I think is fine, however It has a tragicly long start up time (about 10+ seconds) This contrasts badly with office XP on the same machine, wich loads WORD in a couple of seconds.
I had chalked this down to MS advabtage in developing bot OS and APPS, but as an experiment installed cross-over office and ran WORD under that, stragely te sartup time is comparable to running under natively under XP, and thats with the WINE DLL's...
So the question is, can oo be speeded up in some manner, I know if i demo bot products side by side, as it stands Im just going to get strage looks. :-)
