I think it is relatively (*relatively*) simple task to produce a "killer"
application. It is enough to port OpenOffice to MiNT, and voila, you have
"resource hungry and dog slow" program. Then we see, what happens. OOWriter
is enough for the beginning.

OO is probably only usable on a machine like Aranym with JIT enabled, runnig
over a fast machine (I saw how does it behave on Pentium 200MHz, well ...).
