Launching OpenOffice faster

Posted in Applications by Chris on January 19, 2010

I’m not a big fan of office suite software packages and try to avoid using them where I can.  Today I learned something that eased my pain with OpenOffice: you can launch it way faster.  How?  By turning off an option which triggers  a Java Runtime Environment (!) in the background: Extras > Options > OpenOffice.org > Java.  In my opinion this option should be turned off by default, given that a majority of users won’t script Java macros on a regular basis anyway.
