I'm presently working with Jessie (an upgraded Wheezy with no tasks
installed), little additional software (vim, gpm. systemd, less, mc) and
the cache cleared out. "df -h" shows 730M used. I'd not feel comfortable
with a 1GiB partition.
"apt-get install task-gnome-desktop" wants to get 780 MB of archives,
which will use 2,552 MB of disk space. I could live with a 5 GiB
BTW, it should be "minimum" - not "minimal"
