Hi Tom, all

Alternatively it might be better just to install the full product as the
entirety of LibreOffice with all the apps in it is likely to be
considerably smaller than the 2 apps.  Also probably only about 10Mb has
been saved by not installing the other apps. 

I think the point is that the users will get confused with too many options.
I agree that for a beginner (or someone transitioning from another program)
it might be confusing.

It would really be nice if LO offered an alternative interface to allow new
users to get acquainted to the programs they are used to and eventually
"switch" to the whole suite (even though it was there all the time)

If you really need to restrict people to just the 2 apps then AbiWord is
smaller and lighter-weight than Writer
It is highly likely that there is a far better way to make presentations
than either PowerPoint or Impress.  

Abiword is nice and light but it is not on the same league as Writer
(depending on the user requirements, obv) but to my knowledge there is no
standalone Open Source presentation program available.

The nearest you can get  is a standalone Freeware ;)
