I have a cunning plan for you. While everyone else has gone so far as
to properly inform you, I have a concrete suggestion. Put some code
where your mouth is and create a task-minimal-system package (ostensibly
for your own personal use) that conflicts with everything you consider
bloatware, and has no actual content. There may well be others just as
unwilling to use disks of recent vintage as you.
