How much memory does it use?
Version 1.1.15 (Staroffice 7) will work without java, I read, and is only
about 50MB download. Someone thought java is why version 3 was taking
forever to format a doc file and suggested replacing the 900MHz/192MB RAM
computer with something faster in order to use OpenOffice, or getting some
more memory, but in Argentina in 2010 RAM was expensive.
The owner's solution was to migrate from XP to linux.

Staroffice 7 (OpenOffice 1.1, 2005) required kernel 2.2, glibc 2.2
(BL2/SW7.1 comes with 2.1.3), 64MB RAM, 250MB disk space, 800x600 with 256
colors (or Win98 or later). 50MB download. Staroffice 6 = OpenOffice 1.0
(2002). Version 1.x supported Win95. Version 3 (2008) can import .xml.
Opera 9 can read xml.
Open source so you could in theory compile newer versions for older glibc
and maybe kernel if no functionality is missing.
Java is mainly required for database engine and for assistive and adaptive
technologies. 15MB additional download (for some version, for Windows?).
Ron, what do you use OpenOffice for?
