Welcome to the Ubuntu-Minimal-Desktop wiki!
This project aims to make it easy to install minimal versions of Ubuntu. Minimising the number of packages included during the initial installation reduces system resources load and the amount of hard drive space required. Carefully selecting which packages are installed should leave the user with a faster and lighter system, without compromising usability.
Users download the Ubuntu minimal .iso, use it to install the Command Line Installer, and then use wget to download a shell script. When run, the script prompts the user for responses to a range of questions concerning optional packages, then installs the necessary base packages and selected optional packages.
