Thankfully you are free to do so, whether you are right or, as in this

Ok, to clarify, when I said 'bare minimum', I meant if you want the
computer to be usable without having to wait forever for every little
task you attempt to do.

Will it boot with less, of course.

Nortons is what started this discussion - it is only slightly higher on
