    What to do with a 250 GB harddrive

    Ah well, I'm amazed at how big these harddrives are now. I'll probably never have more than 20 gigs of data and I'm thinking of just setting up a bunch of partitions and installing some other distros. Any suggestions?

    I tend to like something stripped down and basic, but I guess I can do a few partitions and try some different things.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Well, other than other distros, you could easily fill it up with every season of every show you enjoy. :O

    Yeah, when I bought my laptop, I never thought I'd use anywhere close to all 80GB.

    well, I'm not meaning to show off...I got it from dell w/ubuntu installed and it was really cheap, I thought (also save about $100 by not installing windoze)

    my last computer had a 20 gig hard drive, which I thought was huge at the time.

    also, thanks rokytnji for the tips

    Rather look at using Virtualbox to try out different distros, it's just so much easier than fooling around with partitions and rebooting etc.
