Hm. No need to resort to the minimal installation .ISO just in order to stay below 1.3 GB.
The Xubuntu 18.04 32-bit and 64-bit installation .ISO image files, both are 1.3 GB, no more.
Cf. e.g. here: Xubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver)

Old bugs good, new bugs bad! Updates are evil: might fix old bugs and introduce no new ones.

that's 'cause Wayland is like UEFI, or Systemd,, ..., or any other phoney binary(pretend-opensource) snake oils.

You seem to have very little understanding of this, like most FOSS nuts.

Not worth it unless they can make it small enough to fit on a 3-inch DVD i.e. <=1.4GB :P
This new minimal install is available as an option within the regular iso. So, even if you want to go the minimal install route, you need to download and make a Live USB (or whatever) of the full install.
