Not fair, OpenOffice.org has more than a word processor.Add there Gnumeric, some filters, a slideshow application, GTK and other dependencies, and then calculate :)

all i wanted was an small ant : word processor
I don't need an monolith in my word processor .
OOo is very slow on my athlon64 2800+!
and it stays a few loooooong seconds before is launched and that with a brand new
S-ata drive (60Mb/s transfer rate)
Don't want to think how is working on laptops.
Let's not start talking about Un-Impress
For reading xls files i use gnumeric and is
very fast for that , Ugly/Borken but Faast
I just wan't to read some prices , Don't need all the graphs or macros , or whatever is loading in background
