Not that much better:

Real world example:

$ df
Filesystem      1K-blocks       Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs           50395844   32372316  15463528  68% /
..
tmpfs             3057628      46748   3010880   2% /run
/dev/sda3        50395844   32372316  15463528  68% /
tmpfs             3057628      46748   3010880   2% /run
...
/dev/sdb8       638902480  153233668 453214376  26% /users/user1

/dev/sdb8       638902480  153233668 453214376  26% /users/user3
