Linux Space Efficiency Testimonial

Filesystem            Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5              20G  8.2G   11G  44% /
/dev/sda3              89M   64M   21M  76% /boot
/dev/sda7             169G   30G  131G  19% /home
8.2GB contains everything in my installation not including private files or my bootloader.
