his comparison of OO.org running faster on Winders is preposterous. . .
If you are running it on two identical computers, winders on one and linux on the other and start OO.org for the first time on each, they will come in at about the same speed.

But, close it and start it *again* and linux will blow winders off the table. . .

been there, done that. . .

You really should compare dollars to dollars when measuring speed, etc. 
  That is, if you want to compare Linux/Openoffice to Windows/MS office, 
spend the $450 you saved on the software licenses on a faster CPU, more 
RAM and a better video card and measure what you get for an equal cost.
