Re:speed & diminishing marginal returns

OpenOffice is not usable on my 700mhz system with 256megs of ram. I know you say it runs "fast" on your 128meg system, but I get the feeling you're just ignoring the chugga-chugga-chugga *blows smoke* (add more coal!) swapping.

Your feeling is wrong and are probably only caused by being a spoiled brat. OO does run just fine on my 300/128 system thank you, and no chugga-chugga or smoke. But then - I run Debian<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-))

What do you have for an OS? OSX?
