Unfortunately, even then, you could only state something like "With
these particular test files, LO is xx% faster."

prefer factual analysis, but how often is software tested and

On my Linux box, with less than one Gig of ram and an old 5400 rpm
harddisk, everything is slow !!!! ;-)
On my Macbook, it depends.
So basically, YMMV - your mileage may vary.
Not to belabour a point, but that's why I felt that if there was a set of
files available, anyone could use them before and after on their own boxes
with both the old and the new version to see how things are for them in
But, really, so what? In my particular case, I regularly use a large and
complex spreadsheet with numerous custom macros. In my case, moving from
LO 3.4.x to 3.5.x apparently broke something vital. A process that has
taken less than 60 seconds to complete in versions 3.x through 3.4.x now
can take 30 minutes or more. Total deal-breaker and major pain in the butt!
So in my own real-(in my)-world test files, v3.5.x is thousands of
percent slower! But I do see your point.
