I think of my coleagues and some people i know that are interested in
programming and not making sys admin stuff. They just want to install
some cd and have all the development environment.

For example, one person i know, just goes to synaptic and starts to
install everything he just thinks it has something to do with what he

So he has lots and lots of stuff that are just filling disk space and
are not used.
