Also, its rather "big" due to the fact that most tools featured are GNU softwares compiled with sane defaults. A full alpine setup would be drastically smaller I think (busybox based)

I got arch in like 10 minutes. lfs probably takes longer.

It obviously does, but that's mostly due to the compilation time.

doesn't a minimal alpine docker container take ~5.5MB?
z3bra
We're talking about docker containers, not actual distros though. so you don't have the kernel, modules and other things
arcetera
ah; I've never used Docker so I didn't know that
