Well if that would be the case on the speed issue of the java options
configuration, would there be any way to make a configuration script that
upon the installation of you can chose to use or not use the java
support? I do also agree that it is essential as an Office Suite and think
it would be nice to offer an option to those working on older machines to be
able to use its vast feature set without so much of the lag. Just a thought.
