Minimal as nothing more than what I need when I install. And minimal
in the unix way, one tool for one usage. I don't use so much tools day
to day, one editor, gcc, erlang, some terminals , a browser, a mua and
from time to time a graphic editor when I can't find a graphist in
time. That's all

Archlinux could be good, I used it in the past, but for sure I'm not
sure I want to use it again. Mostly due to some members of the french
community though. So it may be a bad reason ..
