Congrats.   However, the mystery behind the 40GB (from a another
thread) remains unresolved.   I would suggest you close that thread
with your finding.   The n00b sys admin may  learn a few things from
that experience.

If your CPU [a] and motherboard are LKVM capable + 4GB of RAM, then I
would suggest that you keep one primary OS and keep all the rest of
the hard disk for your /home and experiment with the different OS in a
LKVM environment.

[a] Personal observation, dual core with 2 threads/core has given me
better multitasking between my VMs and other desktop apps running in
the primary OS.
