Re: question about installing everything
I know this may sound a little ridiculous to some, but I have been
using Debian for several years now and was thinking about installing
everything on a computer to experiment on etc.
I am the opposite, I use about 800MB each for Sid and Test (data
separate and shared via symbolic links. Years ago on a Thinkpad365 on a
800MB-HD I ran Win, OS/2, and Linux plus some data.
On UBUNTU and SUSE installs about 1500MB are needed, if you load both
Gnome and KDE expect 2GB.
I also considered installing everything and once installed a whole lot
and found stuff I would never use or understand, possibly leading to
confusion and a possible nervous breakdown. Make sure you have good
