NeoOffice Beta Patch 6

I really enjoyed using NeoOffice Beta 3. It was fast and had the full OpenOffice functionality I know and love but in a nice OSX compatible wrapper. However after downloading and installing Patch 6 it seems that the application is current three steps back on the development cycle. The application is a horrible memory hog and seems to want to grab every resource on the machine it can. Despite this it is also extremely unresponsive to actions I would consider to be trivial such as cut and paste.

Of course I could get more memory for my MacBook: I deliberately underspec’d the machine due to Apple’s high memory prices but still 1Gb of memory for a word processor is excessive. It is easily the most demanding application I’m running at the moment.
