it depends entirely on what you install.   my server installs typically 
have a / of around 3GB used, I generally allocated a 20-40GB / 
partition.   /home is however large your users are.   if you run 
databases or webservers, those can be as big as you need them to be.

Filesystem                              Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/c7test1-root                50G   2.8G   48G 6% /
/dev/mapper/c7test1-home                76G   5.8G   70G 8% /home
/dev/sda1                               497M  264M  234M 54% /boot

but tthis is a server, there's no desktop stuff at all.
