I don't use abiword. When I install a new version of Xubuntu (I always 
install, never upgrade) one of my first tasks is to install LO writer 
and calc. So I don't use the whole suite, just part of it. I suppose if 
LO became the norm for Xubuntu it would mean the whole suite. For me 
this would take up disk space for no good reason.

It is not difficult to install just writer and calc, they are in the 
repositories. So I can't see that there is a problem. If anyone does 
want the whole suite they can install that easily too.
