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.
