Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

Thank you for your lengthy reply. Our opinions differ, but that's allright. I live with GUIs for 20 years and I always try to avoid them, can't help about it. I've also made music on 0.5 MHz/64k RAM computers so I can tell bloat when I see it.
