Its idea of a base install (which might include all manner of things),
or yours (which would mean only what you've listed)?

For those updating a system with quite a few things already on it, it's
a common recommendation to first uninstall some of the larger things,
like OpenOffice.org.

Don't you just love how many OSs will spend quite some time checking for
installed files when you do a fresh installation on a blank drive?  :-\
