_**netinstall**_ (~300 MB): Preferred by more experienced users to create servers, minimal systems but also includes choice of several Desktop Environments (DEs). Not to be used for offline install. Internet connection and available bandwidth needed because all but the core components are downloaded during the installation process. The “expert install” allows user to opt out of firmware installation and a choice of alternate bootloader. A default install will provide firmware.

The official Devuan installation options shouldn’t be considered the only way to use Devuan. A [number of derivatives](/os/devuan-distros) have already adopted Devuan as a base. When reviewing Devuan we do recommend taking them into consideration. They harness the power of our base distribution by targeting specific usage which is exactly what we hope to achieve with Devuan. Please go to the [dev1galaxy.org forum](https://dev1galaxy.org) for [Devuan derivatives discussion and support](https://dev1galaxy.org/viewforum.php?id=9).
