Note that the Java security problems are only applicable to the Java
browser plug-in, not to the JRE.  You can safely use Java extensions. Just
don't install a Java browser plug-in.

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

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