kiwi has other image formats as well.

One more great thing about the kiwi approach is that part of the build
allows you to specify specific things you want removed/kept. This means
that you can install an rpm, and then get rid of the things you do not
want from it. This is great when you are trying to make a small image.

You can check out the Kiwi min-gnome example

http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/KIWI/Cookbook_Recipe05

It uses GDM and does not include OO, but that is easy to fix. In the pre-configured state this produces a 1.3 GB image.
