Linux Space Efficiency Testimonial

Posted 07-27-2010 at 03:53 AM by William (Dthdealer)

Running a mature Ubuntu system, with dozens of games installed ( Including Tremulous, Sauerbraten, Nexuiz and Warsow ), this is my partition usage ( from df -h ) :

Code:
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.

A default installation of vanilla Windows without anything else is approximately this size.

    Supposedly applications such as those ( as well as others such as Internet Explorer ) are components of Windows which cannot be removed without hindering the function of the system. Not only does the monolithic ( as opposed to a modular ) style of Windows hinder its capabilities, so does its attitude to competitors.
