Wow, I'm a bit surprised to read that :-)

I guess in the light of that, multiple processes are the way to go as per my email earlier today... Sure hope that Matthew's approach of copying a template tree for a process makes up for the performance loss when creating a new user environment.

Tor, I have a feeling that the LO/AOO community has discussed multi-threading before? To complex to change? Or not necessary? Do you have more information on this topic?

There is also work ongoing to make Calc calculate in parallel using "plain" threaded code, i.e., not using OpenCL or any other "extra" technology.)
