I didn't think it's possible to use StarOffice with 40 MB of RAM.

Are you just teasing me or are you really using Netscape and
StarOffice on your P90 with 40 MB simultaneously?
I will have to tell my colleagues about that, maybe we should
contact you officially for asking if you would like to work for
us: as Tuning Specialist!  ;-)

My own little P100 here was sometimes quite overloaded when it
had only 72 MB so i never tried to run those two programs at the
same time.

( I don't like distri wars nor program wars so let me just say
  reply that i prefer our Writer because i am used to it and i
  see many benefits by using the Navigator and the Stylist.
  It might be that i'ld love Wordperfect if i were used to it. )

:-)   Nice to hear *that*!
