I bought ApplixOffice 2 years ago and used it under Linux.
It was the time, when StarOffice 3.1 was in beta test. ApplixOffice
used _a lot_ less memory and was way faster then the fat StarOffice 3.1b.
I didn't try the newer Versions of both.

The disadvantage for me with ApplixOffice was, that it couldn't handle
MS Word documents. Don't know, if it can now. StarOffice 3.1b could, but
was too big and slow. These are my experiences.
