And very, very slow. I even adjusted the memory settings to match those
of my 2.1 (OOo official version) and that helped only slightly. I have
two identical systems side-by-side; one running dapper & OOo 2.1 (not
the Ubuntu version) and the other running Feisty OOo 2.2 (Ubuntu)
version. Before the change to 2.2 the 2.1 (Ubuntu) version pretty much
matched the dapper 2.1 version... not any more. I get instant response
from the 2.1 version, but the 2.2 version looks like it's painting the
screen by hand. Have you noticed any difference on your system?
All other applications on Feisty seem to run just fine.
Disclaimer: my systems that I am testing are very old & slow to begin
with. Both are 300Mhz PII 256Mb, but a good test to see what runs on old
