when i say "throw away" i do *not* mean that you should go and start
to manually delete files in /usr/bin/
- - the files in there won't give much disk-space.
e.g. my /usr/bin/libreoffice is really just a symlink to
which means, that deleting /usr/bin/libreoffice will free a handful of
bytes (hard to guess exactly; most likely less than 64 bytes in total!)
- - manually deleting files in /usr/bin is a good start to completely
brick your system, esp. if you are an "amateur linux cracksman".
- - fire up your favourite packagemanager.
- - skim through the packages installed.
- - find those you don't like.
- - mark them for deletion (your package manager will/should complain if
you have marked a package for deletion which is necessary for other
packages to function properly)
- - apply your changes.
iirc, you have been experimenting quite a lot with various linux
distributions in the last months. so by now, you should have a
favourite package manager for Debian-derived systems (and know how to
if not, you should spend the time to acquaint yourself with one (i'd
suggest "aptitude" in interactive mode, but others will work as well)

ok, this is not that bad.
it seems indeed that your disk has 8GB (approx; it says 7.6GB), and
that it has 2 usable partitions (o size 3.5GB and 128MB), which
explains why you cannot see much of the disk.
you could repartition your disk, but i won't guide you through that
via email (as it's too easy to brick the system).
