A client with 1x,000 users has gradually migrated to OpenOffice.org for a few years. They found many complaints about the speed of OpenOffice.org compare to MS Office. This kind of complaint are familiar to us but the magnitude of the problems, e.g. open-file time in minutes seems rather strange. So we investigated the problems to find the kind and cause of them to reach a conclusion that could be use to improve the situation in our client case.

We found that the problem depends solely on hardware, notably RAM, vs. file size. Our client happen to have old IT infrastructure with a lot of old PC, e.g. Pentium with 256M RAM. Add enough RAM (>512M) and OpenOffice.org will run fine for files of average sizes. Add more (e.g. >1024M) to open larger files.

Here is the presentation of our finding.
