Hi All,

I checked the performance of ODFConverter application for DOCX -> ODT
conversion (http://sourceforge.net/projects/odf-converter) for Windows and
Linux and was unpleasantly surprised by significantly worse performance on
Linux platform.

I tested both platforms in VMware player on the same computer to have the
same hardware. 

Linux version was taken from
Windows version was taken from

Test files "ODF_text_reference_v3.odt" and "Handboek_OOo2Writer_NL.odt" 
were taken from

Results are following:
                                           | Windows | Linux
ODF_text_reference_v3.odt      | 4,5         | 10,0
Handboek_OOo2Writer_NL.odt   |  9,0        | 49,0

The results from second file is more representable for my case because
conversion time for my typical document is also about 40 sec. 
So ODFConverter on Linux runs 5 times slower than on Windows!!!

Can the performance on Linux be improved? What is the explanation for this
