Oxygen works faster in some operations than OpenOffice.org. This makes it perform faster than OpenOffice.org on older computers with less RAM.
The OpenOffice.org 3.0 installation no longer includes a large number of dictionaries for writing aids (spell checker, hyphenation and thesaurus), as this impacted application performance. Localised releases may include dictionaries for particular primary and secondary languages. Dictionaries are now available as downloadable extensions, separately for each language. Oxygen installation from version 3 on includes dictionaries in many languages, as a single extension, being a part of installation files. Inclusion of a large number of dictionaries in a default installation may affect performance.
The first time OpenOffice.org is started, a wizard opens to guide a user through the setting of user name and the registration process.This wizard is disabled in Oxygen.
Oxygen uses large icon sizes and the "Tango" icon style for toolbars and menus by default. OpenOffice.org uses small icon sizes and the "Classic" or "Galaxy" icon style by default.
Oxygen can write OOXML files, and not just read them.
Oxygen includes 3-D transition effects in Presentations (Linux).
Use of the GStreamer multimedia framework in Linux for multimedia content;
Oxygen uses a combo box in place of the zoom button in stock OpenOffice.org. Newer OOo 2.x feature releases have a clickable status bar item for a zoom menu. A zoom slider was introduced to OOo 3.0 Writer and later added to OOo 3.1 Calc, Impress and Draw components.
Oxygen Calc 2.4.x has a built in function called "Solver". It is a little different from the Solver function of the same name, which is available from OpenOffice.org 3.0. OpenOffice.org 2.4.x has no Solver.
