This really pains me to say, but this is just not right. I'm not going to call this person an outright liar, but his experience is simply not the norm at all.
On any system that I've used, OOo takes longer than M$ Office to load. Once it's loaded it runs just as fast for most things, but load time is considerably longer. For this reason I usually just launch an OOo window and leave it there for whenever I may need it (on Linux of course, Windows needs as many resources as possible so leaving unused apps laying around is not conducive to a responsive session).
Version 2.0 has improved much on startup times for OOo components, but it still is slower on load than M$ Office on Windows, and this is to be expected what with the same vendor makes both products, so they are bound to have a few proprietary shortcuts and hooks.
I would suspect that this person has some sort of issue with their Office or Windows installation that is causing these issues, either way, they are not representative of my experiences, and I say that as a regular OpenOffice.org user.
