So I wasn't aware of this size hard limit on persistent storage - I just noticed that it is 'already' allocating 1.8GB, but this is indeed less than the 10% of the file system the man page says it will consume. So from my personal point of view this is a non-issue then (ideally Benjamin will also provide feedback, though) - but the new behavior may be worth discussing in release notes.

I would not expect from a normal desktop user that they should have to run commands like `sudo journalctl --vacuum-time=10d`. I would nominate this command as a sane default to have running at each reboot to ensure that logs do not exceed 500 MB: sudo journalctl --vacuum-size=500M Supposedly, a server should by default retain more logs, so perhaps this should be implemented through a configuration package "systemd- configuration-desktop" as a dependency of the ubuntu-desktop meta package?
