Of course, that presupposes that you agree with me that it is shit. Okay, well, if you don't, you don't.
Look. When I install a new system I do *not* want a screen reader. I do *not* want fonts for umpteen different languages that I didn't even know existed, let alone be able to read or write in them. Yes, all of those people that need those things should be able to install them, I don't disagree with that at all, but why the hell are they foisted on the rest of us, gobbling up disk space for zero reason?
It gets worse.
I'm not allowed to uninstall ubuntu-advantage-tools *despite not having Ubuntu Advantage*, because if I do so I'll find that I'd lose the ubuntu-minimal package, amongst other things, which is "used to help ensure proper upgrades" and you're warned you shouldn't unindstall it.
Of course ubuntu-advantage-tools is just one thing, there are... let's just say "many" packages which you just couldn't live without (because if you tried to, a whole bunch of packages that you actually couldn't live without would be uninstalled as well. Like the GNU C pre-processor. Why? If I'm not doing C programming I don't want it. It's that simple. But great gobs of the system apparently rely on it. Or gcc. A running system relies on a fcking compiler. F. R. O.
