    How do you keep your distrobution clean?

    I would like to know how some of you keep your Linux Distro clean? What do you do to make it sparkle and shine?

    Here is what I do, I know some of this may be redundant, but I do it anyway.
    1. Run BleachBit in Root mode
    2. Run Ubuntu Tweaks Package Cleaner
    3. sudo apt-get autoremove
    4. Organize all of my desktop icons, files, and folders into clean folders, or take them off my desktop period


    I do this about one time a week! So how do you clean your Linux PC? Are there some other ways to keep it super clean?

    Put a new distro on every month or so. I just can't help myself and it is just way too easy to do with linux.

    I never need maintenance really. I can't think of anything except perhaps Firefox that might need it. At times I have to delete some old files to renew some space on my data drive. I tend to hoard iso images of distributions I try after a while.

    Good advice .. A lot of ppl do not know of some of these tools.. Well done

    I also like your sig line, worth repeating and one that lot of users really need to learn

    People need to learn the difference between an opinion and someone blowing smoke out their behind. When someone gives their opinion, do not tell them they are wrong, or even make them sound like they are wrong. It is an opinion, get over it.

    What am I, some kind of a wizard that would know you would read this?

    Why so defensive?

    Back on topic, is there any inherent risks to bleachbit that you have come across?
