@ssspacez said in Giant .iso?:
What would be the size of the .iso if one wishes to install everything?
That’s relative. For example a real Antergos iso would be smaller if developers didn’t include cached packages from
/var/cache/pacman/pkg like almost all distros. Antergos use it as an attempt to reduce the need to download packages while installing.
Antergos rescue is the closer size to what Antergos could really be, but again i remember about the cached packages.
My iso Portergos has 1.81GB and use “everything” i usually would want to add after install.
There are some arche-based distros for security like “Black Arch” that is around 7GB, so “install everything” is really relative.
