I want to install 16.04 LTS. But it contains a lot of useless packages for me. I want a minimal version. Are there any distributions that are cropped? Or how to crop it？
I recently tried "Minimal Ubuntu" for Ubuntu v18.04 LTS on my System. It worked perfectly fine. If you wish to try the same for Ubuntu v16.04 LTS, the steps would remain almost the same. Refer the below weblinks for more details:

Hope these links help you out too.
