We, the undersigned, kindly ask all major distributions not to cripple their release CD's by removing important applications like OpenOffice.org, GIMP, and others.

These applications may have their set of problems. Granted. Let's work on them as well.

However, removing such important applications in order to save space for any "current trendy application" just because said application depends on bloated, problematic and polemic runtime environments reveals a worrysome mindset: form over substance.

If the functionality said application provides, is also provided by another application which is far leaner, then please fix the problems with the leaner applications rather than removing important applications such as The GIMP.
