7 That's a good point. In my case, I always use basic cds. When I began
8 with Gentoo installations the basic iso was 30-40MB and if indeed they
9 are double that now I'd very much welcome a reduction to near enough its
10 original size. I'd say <= ~50MB is a reasonable basic iso size but
11 that's subjective.
