Hi Ram,
Well, MS Office has been out for longer, getting banged on by more users. And with MS office you're just starting one application, not the shell/container/whatever for all of MS office. That's how it is with StarOffice.
Add more RAM, shut down unnecessary applications, and let's hope version 6 is faster. ;>
Good luck,
Solveig

Yep, I'm afraid SO is a hog. I've heard some people say that if the choose Tools > Options > General > View, and in the Logo field select "Don't Show", this disables the splash screen at startup and makes it load faster.
