Hi! I am new to Open Office and every time I open the Open Office Writer, my computer slows down a lot and as soon as I close it, it runs fast. I have an

IBM ThinkPad
Processor Speed ~ 300 MhZ
RAM= 64 MB
4.2 GB Hard Drive Space...

I run Mandrake Linux 9.2 on it. Is it because of my System's low resources?

Your 64 MB ram seems to be the main problem. Upgrade it to 128 MB (256 MB recommended). or, for now, use twm, fluxbox or icewm as the window-manager and don't run any big programs along side.
