Games, apps, emulators, i want it all. As someone that's married with children and working i don't have much hobby time. I get more enjoyment out playing with stuff then setting up every detail of every piece of software.

  There is Atari stuff?

Yup thereís an Atari ST emulator on there with some stuff (I havenít played with it much since I know zip about Atari). Thereís also A mac emulator with 2 different Os versions and a number of apps/games installed for them.

I just feel that with 32GB image there isnít much/any room left for installing other stuff.

I am unsure if someone suggested this, but I feel like expressing it here. Wouldn't it be great if we move away from 32 GB image to 64 GB instead?

It just I feel with 32 GB image there isn't enough space left, but with 64 GB you get more free space to do further installation.

  Its not Atari emulator, its fully bootable FreeMINT (improved AtariOS) sadly with no Internet access. I belive its separate FAT16 or so partition acessable by holding LMouse on power to boot EmuTOS and FreeMINT :)
  As Simo kindly shows
  EXTERNAL LINK 
  On 64gb: As it might require a lot of older users card change,
  should be avoided as only solution. Maybe optional.
 
  Similar "free space" could be done with "stripped" version with less WHDLoad slaves, emulator games and other "data" files and would be welcome.
 
  So I would still opt for "small" and "fat" 32gb version, or smaller less then ~20gb and full ~50GB versions.
 
  GBs and Amiga? Its not only the OS, its OS lot of data files, a maintenance partition (see maintenance section of EXTERNAL LINK ) and this "Amitari" - FreeMINT.

Ideally, just the base stuff would be installed, rest would be LHAd in some Archive place, and some nice Amiga GUI installer could provide extras install :)
 
  Optionally, a strip image of pimped OS + apps + Atari + backup (or better to say, no games or data files) would be nice to see for many reasons. No matter how big or better small.
 
  Nice Amiga Style Anim of Vampire coming by Chad Essley
  EXTERNAL LINK 

This is the best option then some of the updates could be just delta lha files
