Re: Which is worse

"The 16 or 20 GB is the _free_ space required for an _update_ from Windows 7 or 8."

So that's including keeping a complete copy of the current OS then for roll back / uninstall...

"Ubuntu includes many applications and language systems, such as LibreOffice and Python"

Quite - so bloated with lots of unnecessary crap as per the original comment....

"Ubuntu package manager also installs/removes thousands of applications, not merely 'features'."

So does Add / Remove Programs (where Add / Remove Features also resides) in Windows.

"Thus, with *NIX, reboots are not required.!"

So you have obviously never updated a kernel then....
