NeoOffice Quickstarter

I’ve been using OpenOffice for years under Windows now and StarOffice before that, even on Solaris – might be more than 10 years? Recently my laptop died and I decided to get a new one and although I haven’t had an Apple Mac for about 8 years I decided to buy a Mac as now they run on Intel chips, I can run Windows on it – plus they look and feel great and I like the fact there is a Unix base under OSX. I thought that I would move to using NeoOffice (an OpenOffice derivative for the Mac with native look and feel) and soak up the Mac ethos by using all of their short cuts etc. All is great, but NeoOffice is very slow to start: in excess of 10 seconds after I start the machine and login.


I’ve looked for a quickstarter application but I can’t find one. If anyone knows of something that will help to start NeoOffice up more quickly I’d love to hear about it. I’ve an idea that I can go down to the BSD level of the machine and cobble something together that runs NeoOffice at Boot (or at least at login) using the -invisible and/or -headless parameters, but I’m not sure that it would help and I’d rather find a more elegant solution.

If I do find a solution to this rather annoying problem I’ll post it here.
