I'm assuming (hoping) you will test this on actual hardware, not on a virtual machine. Which means you would have to install them all. Two benchmarks I'd like to see:
- installed size. Using the default selections, what is the total filesystem usage after installation? Excluding swap I'd say.
- installation time. From switching on the machine till reboot once done, how much time taken? Perhaps exclude the parts where you have to answer questions (and perhaps add how many screens with question you have to answer).

Even if you don't include those, you're awesome for doing this :mrgreen:

why thank you, installed time i though i listed either, i never thought of fs usage, good idea.
and no vm's
this being on the following specs
