  IMO, nothing wrong with talking about it here.  if
people want to filter it out they can.  it is a valid
use of Debian to construct a derivative, and some of
us may find it interesting.  :)

  the last time i did a basic install of Debian it was
around 200 packages (base system and a few others i
needed), i'm not sure what the base system install for
Jessie is like.
