>10GB was fine for a root partition in the 1990s, and is probably still adequate for a server. But desktop systems involve a *lot* more large packages (eg desktop environments) than a headless server system, and the kinds of applications installed on a desktop system also tend to be much larger (esp. games).

/dev/mapper/Debian-root   23G  3.6G   19G  17% /

With all the software I need installed, it takes 3.6 GB here :)

It really depends on the user (basically the question is: how many large games are you going to install?) but I would say 10 GB is more than enough for teh rootz.
