To b clear, it does not matter on desktops and servers.
The pain point (for me) is my BeagleBoard and CubieTruck. They usually
have 2GB or 4GB of storage, only have 750 MB or so after install, and
sometimes run out of space when compiling programs. Things I have to
be mindful of include package caches, installed locales, extra storage
required by a program or library.
