I have a 500 page work history (only 330 kb) that I like to keep so I can search for things I've done.
When I used Word 2000, its format, and a regular hard drive it took 1 second to save.
Now with a SSD and Open Office it takes 15 seconds. It maxes out one of my CPU cores even if I just added a single character to the file.
I'm using Open Document Text format. Is this the best one? Open Office 3.4.1.
I gave Open Office more RAM (128mb), but that didn't help.
