Dude, geeeeez!

Install only what you need. Don't use the "GNOME Desktop" selections when
you set up. Install packages individually. If your distro isn't good at
doing this, get another distro.

Don't complain about packages required for the operation of the operating
system. Debian requires Perl to work, etc. I have a Debian box here with
lots of free space on a 200MB hard drive.

Use *your* brain, don't rely on your distro, and if you've got something to
whinge about... FIX IT, DON'T BITCH.
