[the feedback] 650 fonts to be installed by LO is a "bit" excessive. I have a computer capable of running the heaviest game at maximum settings but apparently 650 fonts are capable of bringing it to its knees. When I open LO and try to choose a font (the font I like and use everywhere), not only I can't find it bc it's at the bottom of the list, but also the computer stutters like crazy, as if I'm still using a Pentium II.

[the suggestion] I think these 650 fonts should be in a separate package, like libreoffice-fonts and that package should be installed optionally and manually by the user and only if they really need these 650 fonts. 

Personally, I use only 2 fonts - Open Sans SemiBold and a Mono font for the terminal. Fortunately for me the aliases are life savers, so I can get rid of these 650 fonts easily using just one word in the terminal but I doubt that a linux newbie would know how to use an alias or would even want 650 fonts.

Steps to Reproduce:
Not necessary for this feedback.

Actual Results:
It's a feedback, not a bug report.

Expected Results:
It's a feedback, not a bug report.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

LibreOffice shows all the fonts installed on the computer, not just the fonts that LO installs, https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Fonts, a total of 42.

Maybe you have installed a fonts package inadvertently.

But there is no way LibreOffice doing that.
