The one item I didn’t see mentioned is the size of the next upgrade kernel. I “sized” my root partition for 6.1 years ago. 7 didn’t fit on it unless I removed the kernel debug symbols during the installation. 8 wouldn’t fit at all. I have periodically had to completely rebuild the system disk to resize the partitions for system upgrades. That is a real pain and a major downtime. 10 is out and 11 is almost here. Newer systems are always larger.
