In my opinion, percentage filled is moot (does not matter) unless perhaps the topic is filesystem behavior (like fragmentation). Otherwise free space is what matters. For example, 100MB free might be plenty much for a simple kiosk with a 4GB filesystem (98% filled). Or 1GB free on a workstation out of 1TB (99.99% filled). The answer to your question then, in free space, depends on usage, and whether the root partition is separated from /home, /var, etc.
