Linux It seems that I am in some sort of retro-mode. As Linux on the desktop is getting bigger and better, with more apps, more sleek looks (Galaxy, Keramik and Blue Curve for example) and more idiot proof, I am going onto simpler, more condensed stuff. The big distributions are nice, but I really do not need all the applications that come with them all the time.

4 GB HD space is worth less than $4.. so why should you care? Unless your time is completely worthless, when these 4 GB (and the distributions that install them) save you only an hour you made quite a good deal.

In a few years we will have cheap terrabyte disks... who cares about a GB more or less? The important thing is to manage all the storage (and maybe to make use of it ;) , not to have even more free space.
