Use a SSD?

First time I had an SSD was a tablet with a 128 GB SSD, and I can tell you that it got really full really quick, and it was an endless battle against a full SSD.
But having a 256 GB doesn't sound much, but it's still an entirely different experience in that aspect.

Of course it's still not enough if you use Windows, since the vanilla OS alone takes up about 20-40 (?) GB of space, then add all the apps you need, and you'll use up 90 GB.
Then add the bloatware it most likely ships with, and your PC is basically full before you could even get started with it.
On Linux on the other hand it can be easier, as you can install and remove every single component without limitations, the vanilla OS is normally way lighter, and any app you need doesn't use crazy amounts of data unlike the ones on Windows.

Edit:
I was a bit in a hurry when I wrote the last bit.
I should note that the use of "3rd party" for Linux-based software is a bit wrong, because actually everything can be considered 3rd party, considering the kernel is being developed by thousands of individual developers worldwide at the same time, and distributions can be owned by anyone (company, developer group, or even individual with a lot of free time).

If I own more proper quality computers doesn't automatically make me rich.
In order for me to afford better computers, I simply trade off based on what I need and what I prefer.

For example, I only go buy clothes once every half year, so that's easy to limit.
The food I buy is cheaper, and I need to be creative to make it taste well.
And living in a modern house with no gas source means I need to keep my house warm based on electricity, water, and isolation, which still cuts off a huge chunck of costs monthly.
And I have a full time IT job, meaning that it earns quite well.

That leaves me with more money to spend on technology.

If you want me to ignore you, then either you're most likely be dropping insults over me, or there's simply nothing to answer to.
Otherwise, I'm not an arsehole, so I don't ignore questions (or answer with nothing telling answers on purpose).

I have never had an SSD in my system. I don't find a need for one when the only things I do are gaming and browsing online. My PC boosts fast enough - around 9.5 seconds.
