Multiplatform 3.0 Benchmark

Filed under

It's time for an benchmark rematch. Go-oo has been proudly boasting it is "Better, Faster, Freer," but last time when we tested 2.4, Go-oo came in fourth place out of four. Since then Go-oo developers addressed some problems, and now we're checking a new version 3.0 and adding benchmarks on Windows.


The following editions were tested. The abbreviated code identifies each edition in the charts.

* Ubu Go-oo: Universal Linux build of Go-oo 3.0.0 on Ubuntu.

* Ubu PPA: 3.0.1 on Ubuntu. Ubuntu 8.10 normally comes with 2.4, so this is the version from the popular PPA. Like the edition that ships with Ubuntu, PPA is based on Go-oo.

* Ubu StarOffice: StarOffice 9 on Ubuntu with Java JRE 1.6.

* Ubu Vanilla: Vanilla 3.0.1 on Ubuntu. Vanilla means it is the unmodified version available from

* Win Vanilla: Vanilla 3.0.1 on Windows without a Java JRE.

* Win Portable: Portable 3.0.1 on Windows modifies the vanilla edition with executable compression, by removing some files, and by making other changes.

* Win StarOffice: StarOffice 9 on Windows with Java JRE 1.6.
