In an effort to improve system stability without completely
reinstalling, how would someone pick and choose things to trim or remove
from a Desktop/Workstation? My favorite and main Linux/Debian machine
is flaky right now, and I don't want to commit the time and mental
effort to completely nuke from orbit [it's the only way to be sure].
Also, I'd rather not rely on automated tools, especially, but not
necessarily only, apt-get autoremove. I realize I haven't given you
specifics yet, but I'm looking at where best to start, besides just
removing unused packages. Systemic cruft in particular, e.g., daemons
or services loaded that are redundant or silly, such as tracker.
