just wondering for no particular reason if my linux box has less or more packages and commands then most (I'm guessing less). Heres my results:

packages (on arch linux probably not a very good way to determine anything):
238

commands:
1169 as root and 1168 as a normal user.

du:
1.536732 gb

Probably a better (untested) method for calculating number of installed packages on Debian-based systems would be

dpkg -l | wc -l

Minus 5.
