If you feel OpenOffice is too slow, why not try Abiword.

http://www.abisource.com/ "AbiWord Oct 03, 2005 AbiWord 2.4 has been released! This milestone brings in its wake support for OpenDocument file import, equation editing, grammar checking, and a whole lot more! " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiword "AbiWord is a Free Software word processing application licensed under the GNU General Public License which runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, ReactOS, SkyOS, BeOS and other operating systems."

http://www.abisource.com/release-notes/2.4.4.phtml "AbiWord v2.4.4 Released

After a long wait, the AbiWord team is happy to announce the availability of AbiWord v2.4.4. This release is a bugfix release only. For those of you wondering about v2.4.3: it is basically the same as 2.4.4, except for some build issues that were fixed.

The changes from v2.4.2 to v2.4.4 include, amongst others:

# Substantially updated the OpenDocument import and export filters # Lots of tweaks to the Windows interface # Various fixes to our Right-to-Left text handling routines"

Abiword runs fine on Windows. As you can see, it is lite and fast and it features ODF support!
