Convenient system clean-up with Stacer

Conclusions

All tasks handled by Stacer can be run at the command line, with standard graphical tools, or even with the use of competitor products such as BleachBit [5], but not with the same graphical appeal. Stacer looked best on Apricity OS [6] because it perfectly matches the modern appearance of this Arch Linux-based distribution.

Delivery as an AppImage lets you distribute Stacer to multiple distributions in a single package; additionally, you save yourself the installation overhead. However, the AppImage weighs in at more than 50MB, and the executable file is around 75MB after unpacking; the complete package tips the scales at 130MB. Keep in mind when using Stacer that you could shoot yourself in the foot with poorly considered actions.
