LibreOffice is still not so bloated. The installer sizes of LibreOffice are  
10~20 times smaller (depending on platform) than Microsoft Office (ISO file  
from a "pirate" software site). Sometimes even a Microsoft Office update  
package is bigger than LibreOffice installer. And I believe LibreOffice can  
be even slimmer if it needn't to deal with non-free formats.

(Is non-free software the main cause of software bloating? Proprietary  
software vendors are trying their best to add anti-features to their non-free  
software in order to lock-in users.)
