Im trying to make a few instances of ubuntu server on my hypervisor and according to documentation the final size should be around 5Gb for a minimum install, however mine are always around 15Gb. Im just downloading Ubuntu server from the ubuntu website, and accepting all default options, which from my understanding should install with the minimal options so why soo big???

Any suggestions what Im doing wrong, or how to reduce my final image size?

Thanks in advance
