Agreed.  My other laptop has to dual-boot with XP.  However, I only require it 
for one application.  I partitioned it with 8GB for XP system (no data) and to 
my surprise the most basic install filled it to danger point.  I could 
certainly run a modern linux distro, with more applications, in the same 
space.

More importantly, in linux, if you think something does install too much, you 
do have a choice.
