I'm using linux at home and I've tried the Ubuntu desktop version and it works fine but I wanted the ubuntu on my PC to contain just what i need and nothing else.

I've used well over a dozen different distros, but keep coming back to the top 4-5 on DistroWatch. What is your recommendation for or against distro-hopping?

I can read the drive and see what is on it but I have no idea what to look for in the files.
