I havn't experienced it slowing down but, than again, I wouldn't use it
that often. You could try OpenOffice.org Quickstarter - it's a KDE
applet that loads a copy of OOo into memory when KDE starts up and any
time you need to run OOo it appears to be "lightning fast".
I think there is a version for Windoze and Gnome (but I *think* the
Gnome version might just provide a system tray short cut as opposed to
preloading a copy to memory).
