Re: Why are the Squeeze images so much larger?

I have seen other distros use a script to install OpenOffice postinstall saving about 300 mb on the CD; the idea being that the user mostly needs or wants to see if the distro works with the hardware and is to the users liking, not using it for long.

having automatical installation of recommended packages enabled or not
makes a huge difference.
