So can you guys name one Linux distro that doesn't come preloaded with bloat, i mean Linux is better than windows since you have control, but i don't want to have fire fox out of the box i don't want fkin libre office can't we have a distro like arch but we don't have to go through the lengthy installation process. Maybe throw in the drivers and a bare bone DE of choice and that's it

    But the OP said that he doesn't want a bloated version. DSL has Firefox and two more browsers as well!!!

    You can always write a small shell script to remove the bloat at once.

    Arch Linux is the solution to that: zero bloat by default because there is no default (not even a boot loader, you decide what you install). They have an awesome wiki and beginners guide making it as easy as it gets to install the system you want.

    Another distinction to Debian is that you are in control of the daemons, it wouldn't just autostart every server you install.
