The difference between October and May? About 16GB, says Microsoft: Windows 10 1903 will need 32GB of space

what I am curious about...

Does that mean successive updates agree to live within those means?

Why? Well, a long time ago I was partitioning my main drive.

Win 7 system partition C: 25G

Linux partitions... no where near 25 G

D: - all the rest - user data and program partitions , basically where I would install any games. So C: would never be asked to take these on.

Over time C: filled up with all the stupid service packs and their revert checkpoints and I ran out of space.

Yes, yes, this may NOT be the cleverest way to install Windows but I do that once every 5 years max so I never get any good at it (and... don’t care as it’s a gaming machine)

Question is: is MS hereby committing not to sprawl even more than 32GB, no matter what?
