How long is a long time? I run Gentoo and OOo1.1 takes 3-4 secs to start*. I 
don't know if that is too long or not as Gentoo is the only flavor of Linux 
I've used.

Yeah, me too. I just burnt the two install discs :-)

I heard FreeBSD is faster than Linux... We'll see if that's actually true ;-)


* the box is a Pentium III 1Ghz, 512MB RAM. Gentoo 1.4, Linux Kernel 
2.6.3-mm3. OOo was compiled with gcc 3.3.2 IIRC. Everything uses -Os as I 
found it's -in general- faster than -O{2,3}
