I'm not any kind of fan of OO.o, thanks to its weight, slowness,
Java-dependent build process, lack of binary availability, obtuse
interface (much like MS Office's), and so on. I don't feel the need to
install all of KDE or GNOME just to get a word processor and spreadsheet
program I might use a couple times a year.
I don't think Go-oo is smaller than OO.o, though it is reportedly a lot
faster. Of course, it's not in ports, and I'm not keen on building
something roughly the size of OO.o just to find out if it runs a little
faster, so I don't know personally whether that's true.
