We use the UNO API from Java and it is reasonably fast, usually takes less than half a second
to convert a two page document to PDF.  We have run similar tests on Linux and gotten similar
results.  Haven't used any of the BSDs so I don't know if performance would be comparable.

I'm using OOo under freebsd, using the command line to convert to pdf or doc from odt. Always
was slow (it's only a small m/c), but the total time jumped from around 10 sec to perhaps
40-50 sec after a similar upgrade from 2.x to 3.y (I forget the exact x, y). Maybe v3 slurps
up more memory; I've not investigated.
