Your review of ThinkFree Office was unfair. you blaimed the fact that it was written in java for making it slow. Java has nothing at all to do with the fact that it is is slow. The fact that it has to access a Web service to load and save documents is the problem.
Please try the standalone (non-applet) version of ThinkFree Office. It is written in Java as well, but is very fast and responsive. Much faster and more response than OpenOffice for example. It is my word processor of choice since it runs on all my platforms, (Windows, Linux, and OS X) and looks great on all of them.
Again, try the standalone version please. And I suspect you will not be able to make the claims you did about it being slow and such.
