As for the startup lag...
Don't know about other distros, but the OpenOffice Debian package
starts up lazily--you just get a blank window, then you have to start up
the desired component (Writer, Calc, Impress, etc.). It's an
improvement, but I still notice quite a lag even on my P4 2.8GHz box
(about 10 seconds).
Emacs in YaTeX comes up instantly :-)
Last dig (for today), I promise!
