Build Documentation NoDefaultApps
Advanced users can install fewer recommended packages to make the resulting build smaller and more customizable.

The --apps switch was removed in Whonix 14 since it is broken and unmaintained!
NoDefaultApps builds are less tested due to a lack of contributor manpower, but should work well in principle.
- This is often combined with terminal-only builds, see above.
- A NoDefaultApps system will remove various package e.g. Arm on Whonix-Gateway. Please do not create a NoDefaultApps build and then later complain that packages are missing.
This process just excludes a few meta packages. Meta packages are packages that do not hold files of their own, but rather only instruct apt-get to install other packages. Run.
