My largest Stretch root partition is 5.6GB. One or more of my 32 bit Stretch
installations may be on 4.8GB. All have separate partitions for /home and
/usr/local, none /opt or /usr. All are either EXT3 or EXT4. None have Cinnamon,
XFCE, Gnome, Mate, KDE or LibreOffice. Most have only IceWM and TDE. Nothing
stays in apt's cache for long, but I do have more than two installed kernels on
many of them. Also, all are kept svelte by APT::Install-Recommends "false";.
