Ubuntu, stupid language packs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Why are these always downloaded by default upon installation? Why do I have to choose to skip these instead of choosing to install them? This is as ridiculous as "Press 1 for English."

Am I missing something? Are they there for a reason that I don't understand? All it does is install chinese and bangladeshi and indian and arabic, right?

Same reason it installs all sorts of drivers and applications you don't need by default - it's supposed to work without any hassle on the user's side, whether he lives in America or not. If you don't like the bloat use Arch or something instead.

No, my beef is that it spends time during installation to download language packs. If they installed themselves off the disk, that would be just as stupid, but why is it going to go out of its way to download that crap?

It does it automatically.

I've found a solution: disconnect the internet while installing the system.
