LIbreoffice's slowness


Does it seem to you that LibreOffice is even slower than OpenOffice? I could easily be imagining it, because LibreOffice is just a rebranded OpenOffice (or so I understand) and because it's not like I timed OpenOffice's load time with a stopwatch; but I think LibreOffice loads rather slowly.

I haven't noticed a difference. Both of them take a little bit the first time in a session, then load quickly in subsequent times in the same session.

And LO is much more than a rebranded OO. It's fork, a new project that is going to move forward on its own, since Oracle displayed little or no interest in improving OO after they absorbed Sun.

Hmmm I tried to walk past this post and resist the temptation to reply.. I've failed.. IMHO, LibreOffice opens way quicker than OpenOffice ever did and this is on both my dual core machines. However once the application has been loaded for the first time, subsequent reloads are even quicker due to the fact it has previously been loaded into memory. Not only that, it integrates better with my KDE desktop. No missing menu items. The fonts render better. All the toolbars are there and don't randomly disappear. I only hope that they don't reunite with OpenOffice, that would be a step backwards..IMHO.

Like you, it is too late for me to take timings for a scientific comparison.

Ha, that thought probably goes through the head of many responders in non-NIX General. We respond to a thread of Linux-irrelevant drivel because it's there.

Anyway, I guess I stand corrected on LibreOffice.
