Do you use the quick starter?

I write for a living and use OO Writer (I'll switch to LO obviously once my 
distro packages it, but I'd rather not use a Beta release for work).

Like Phil I write a lot, though not for a living unfortunately, so Writer accounts probably for 
over 90% of my usage, with Calc accounting for most of the rest.  Very occasionally I receive a 
Powerpoint presentation, and I think once I have tried to use Draw for something.

Calc is mostly used now for membership lists and accounting in our local Gardening club, and I have 
been thinking about Base for the membership bit.  After reading in Francois' email that he finds it 
easy to use, I'll probably give it a go.

Like Jeff I have LibO on my computer and fire it up to test things, but I have to have OOo 
installed also until LibO is released, since I don't want to use beta apps for live work.

There is as far as I know no quick starter on the Mac, but I have placed OOo in the Mac equivalent 
of the Startup folder on Windows, so that it opens a default document on boot in the morning, which 
I immediately close, and then I have OOo "open" so that future documents start up much quicker.
