That doesn't make sense.  If you get rid of the /usr vs /

But then you have a minimum 1-5GB /. That sucks.

Why, exactly?  I know people think it's obvious, but the lack of
stated reasons worries me.

I know the *original* reasons why / needed to be small, but they don't
apply anymore.  So I'll buy the "it's obvious" if you can state the
original reasons and explain why you think they still apply.  If not,
then what is the current reason?


What do you think are the original reasons "/" needed to be small?
