Hello Michael

PLease consider removing all these undesired dictionaries and extensions. Actually, I agree with OOo project where we should keep LO as lean as possible and offload collateral delevelopments to extensions, which by the way is a very nice feature.

Now with no intent to spark flames, I am concerned in distributing LO to a corporation as large as 120K desktops. Every single useless extension is a source of concern for failure, doubts and support costs. 120.000 small annoyances is a huge problem, believe me.

So I beg to remove them. All of them. I need to have LO focused in my locale, with only one or two upgradeable extensions (dicts, grammar checker) that I can manage for 120.000 users. The corporation I work for only allows extensions under strict business need.

Thank you very much indeed.

        So - there are lots of parts of LibreOffice that cannot be removed
easily; such as the clipart gallery, or say, the Quattro Pro file
filters, or whatever.

        The more interesting thing to me is - why would you want to remove the
PDF Import ? or the Presenter Console ?

        If there are bugs that make these unususable, or particularly
problematic - then, we should fix those instead IMHO. ie. can we fix the
bug in the right place ?
