Minimalism should be the standard, not the outlier. Most people don't need overly vague libraries that can solve every possible use case, they need a simple solution that can do everything it's designed to do easily.

A lot of significant open source software could be split into multiple seperate installs. Stuff like ffmpeg is pure bloat; fight me. 90 percent of those tools are never going to get used and instead will just waste space on someones harddrive in an era where public repos and internet connections are getting faster day by day.

Just because your retarded ass never bothered checking the man page for the ffmpeg options doesn't mean your little graphical programs don't use them faggot

Minimalism is when pretentious little Gnome faggots remove the features we actually want to use.
