Well, in my opinion the best way is:

a + b x - b y + O[x, y]^2 // Normal

a+b (x-y)


Dear Andrzej,

That is a nice method. Could you please kindly comment, what stays behind. >From the documentation it is not quite clear to me. It only states
"Normal<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Normal.html>[expr] converts a power series to a normal expression by truncating higher-order terms."
but does not state, what expression is considered to be normal.

Best, Alexei
