More use CD than you know/back tobloat
Many people use Ubuntu who don't need to use a "beginners" distro. Until recently Ubuntu had a foot in both worlds. One for the newbie and the other for the Linux-loving power user. I and others prefer to have to install Libre-office and some other stuff than go through and un-install programs we will never use. Sure, with different package managers it's almost easy and safe to remove stuff, but once in a while a dependency gets broken, and I and others tend to remove a package that we try and don't like rather than leaving it around to clutter up our installation. I now remaster with in hours of a fresh installation after adding and or removing anything that needs to be changed. This way I can install on a new computer in minutes, and update && upgrade and be good to go, or if I break something I'm working again in little more time than it takes me to make a pot of coffee and have a cup. My personalized distros usually come out between 1.2 and 1.4GB. What does the latest Ubuntu DVD weigh-in at? (and I have a couple of heavy packages that most useres would not).
