In your case the disk seems to be full and your home directory is big enough; I would say there is no need for complicated procedures, and the best strategy is creating different home user directories between Debian and Ubuntu bellow home. As in /home/debian/userand /home/ubuntu/user. To change the default base $HOME, both in Ubuntu and Debian, edit ...

You can use the other command line options of systemd-analyze to get a better overview about what delays your boot. Your command showed that most of the time is eaten up by userspace processes. Therefore I recommend investigating this further. Take a look at systemd-analyze blame and systemd-analyze plot The first one will give you a per process list ...

I of course can't give you the answer to your situation, but I wan't to try and give you some ideas on it. First of all: use SSDs! I understood that you can't affort them yet, but you will definitely love them once you have them. And I assume it is a better idea to do this whole setup once and for all, not now and in a few month you have to do it all over ...

Another suggestion: You can also just buy a second hand brand name workstation (or build a custom one but I think it's not worth it) with 32/64gigs of ram and 2 x 8 core Xeon E5-2670s for instance (+hyperthreading, thus having 32 CPU threads), with 3 drives in RAID5 and install an OS as a hypervisor and have your 3 OS's in virtual machines. This way you can ...
