Re: StarOffice 5.2

I use only StarOffice. I do find it slow - only some times, but i am using
a Cyrix233 Mhz machine wth 128 MB Ram. It does not irritate me atall
except once in a while when it does something slower. Overall I am happy
being away from MSO and I don't find its performance bad/ineffective.
Yes, making it faster will help, but I cannot comment technically on it or
its reasons of being 'slow'.
