I had to free up some space the other day and found that I had installed Obsidian (a Markdown text editor/organiser) as snap instead of deb. It took 1Gb... For essentially a text editor...
Now part of the reason was because of a bug it had installed multiple versions of the NVidia driver alongside it. I never found out why a text editor required graphics drivers either. I uninstalled it and downloaded the .deb from their website instead at ~70Mb. Still bloated but a big improvement.
As a developer it is embarrassing the complete lack of care or pride taken shovelling out this shit. It's like we are trying to meet some kind of inverse Moore's law by making everything slower and bigger the faster the systems get
