[xubuntu-users] Is there a list for *ABSOLUTE* beginners with Xubuntu?

It wasn't the size of the installation I meant, rather the size (in memory) of the LO writer application.

I also use Xubuntu, recently on my new laptop. I don't like abiword so I 
did install Libre Office, but not all of it. Via synaptic I installed LO 
writer only. Of course you do get a few extra files included 
automatically so that it will run, but I have not included other parts 
of LO such as calc, draw, base or impress. If you do not need them all 
there is no need to install the whole suite.

Hope this helps,
