Ha! Ha! there you go, LO just runs on whatever platform and O/S of your choice. And for the most part, what is a minute or less really from switch on to productive use of something. I can't make a cup of tea in that time, and I mean a real brewed cup of tea. Now at least the movies can show an actor sitting down in front of a PC and almost instantly start to work on it, I used to laugh at this in the past :-P

Hi :)
That is weird.

On this fairly crumby laptop, 2.2GHz (hmmm, not so crumby after all) it took about 0-1 seconds for the LO splash-screen to appear. Same on my really nice desktop, 1.86GHz (hmmm, not so nice after all!). Both running Ubuntu and fairly old versions of LO (i think). Meanwhile on Windows 2.93GHz it took about 1s to open Writer completely. Didn't even have time to see the splash screen.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop. I'm running a dual boot Windows 7 and Linux Mint 15 (running in the Windows WUBI installer). I just started using LO 4 on the Linux Mint side and immediately noticed how much faster it runs on Mint rather than Win7. I'm sure there are a lot of variables, and I haven't tested them all, but so far, I'm really pleased with the performance of LO on Mint.
