I have been using OO since about 1.4, including all the betas and am now
I have not experienced any performance problems (I am running a 2.0 ghz
AMD). Startup time is dependent upon whether you are running OO's
quickstarter, which I am not as it is not too slow for me. Once up it is
fast. On occasion, it has minor problems with Word, but I can't recall
if that has been resolved in 2.0.

As to using it with XML or OSIS, I think that may be possible, but I
have no knowledge of it.
I think it would be very interesting for a Sword application to
send/open OSIS text into an OO document, either opening a new document
or inserting it at the current insertion point, and for it to receive
text from it (e.g. for personal commentary).
For modules in non-OSIS, a mod2osis like filter could be used to convert
the fragment to OSIS prior to sending.
So I don't think that this is off topic.
