Initially when I installed Natty, JRE was not installed for libreoffice. Later I came to know installing JRE i.e.,
libreoffice-java-common will lead to performance improvements. So installed it and in LO options selected enable java runtime. But I noticed a heavy degradation in the performance. LO was taking more time to load, scrolling through pages became very slow and what not!
So now I wonder what purpose does JRE in LO serve?
