I must have missed something in this thread.  Last time I looked, we
were talking about port deletions. At a glance, it looks like you have
about 35Gb -- the df output says that those are 1kb blocks.  It also
looks like /usr/local is not a separate mountpoint, so both the base
system software in /usr and the third-party software in /usr/local are
counting towards the roughly 23Gb used in /usr.  (But why ask us?
Just run du(1) or something, and find out.)  I have older hardware, so
I use the CLI as much as I can, and favor lightweight programs, only
using a few components of Gnome.  If you feel overburdened, consider
dropping one of the desktops, or using a lightweight alternative like
Xfce.  Or do like I do and just use a lightweight windows manager, not
a full desktop, and cherrypick a few pieces of software from the full

This person was giving you a computer for free, and you somehow
managed to get them to install new, extra drives before they handed it
over?!  Tell them I need one, too.
