9.7 Gb on Windows XP...
- WinXP SP3
- AVG Anti-virus (free version)
- OpenOffice 3.0
- iTunes
- FileSync (to sync my iTunes music directory from server to my 'music
drive' (fat volume not included in the 10Gb and accessible from Linux
- Firefox
- Thunderbird
- Acrobat Reader
- Removed trial version of MS Office, MacAfee Internet Security

I think that is sort of a Windows minimum myself.

3.9 Gb on Fedora 10
- GNOME & KDE full packages
- Big installation of games, OpenOffice, Scribus, Webdev, Acrobat
Reader, FlashPlayer, Rhythmbox, mplayer, gxine

I appreciate the notion of bloat but on a 'desktop' system, I am less
concerned with bloat then I am on a 'server' system.
