On the other hand, google-chrome, at 179MB, would be unacceptable except that I need it for sites that absolutely have to have the latest version of flash. LibreOffice, at somewhere around 300MB, is unacceptably large given that I don't need all of LibreOffice's features and am well-served by Abiword and Gnumeric (at a total of 60MB).
Thanks RockDoctor. Makes sense. I have a very old computer (Dell Optiplex 170L) with only a 39GB hard drive, but amazingly I haven't used but half of it, and I have just about everything I need so I should be okay.
