So I am a week late to the party...
...But I am slow. It took me more than 6 decades to get old.
I downloaded the "minimal" .iso to install in a VM and it's 1.4 GB in size.
@Liam Proven If you can explain how a minimal .iso reaches that size it would be good. On a "slow" internet connection I could download and compile a minimal Gentoo install in less time then it would take to download the full release .iso for RHEL/Rocky.
