You could do the default install and not ever use Base. (I do not use
the Math component even though I have it installed.) If size of the
install is a problem, the custom install uses about 5 MiB less than the
default install. LibreOffice is a single integrated program with a core
section (most of the installation) and the individual components
(Writer, Calc, Base, Draw, Impress, etc.) which each add 5-10 MiB of
installed files. All of the components share the core section. They even
use some of the files from other components. For example, Base forms and
reports use Writer files to create or modify them. Impress uses Draw and
Writer functions .

Thanks for the replies, to you and Tom Davies.

Yes, I'm using Windows, version 8 Pro 64bit.

I prefer not to install Base, because I read that it requires Java, and I don't trust much Java, since there seem to be a lot of security issues appearing.

Can you confirm that Base requires Java, which will be automatically installed during LibreOffice's installation?

I can confirm that Base requires Java (specifically, JRE). I can also confirm that Java is not installed with Base. You have to manually install Java yourself from and then install it. So, you can do a default install of LibreOffice without having to worry about Java being installed on your computer. (The LibreOffice Window's download file does not contain the Java program.) One point about installing LibreOffice on Windows. Every time you install a new version of LibreOffice on Windows, you should first uninstall the older version of LibreOffice. There have been problems caused in the past because someone did not do this. For some reason, Windows wants only one version of LibreOffice installed.
