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

What the feculent pile of...

My friends wife has a small netbook-esque mini laptop (HP Stream?).

It's got A 32GB soldered down eMMC device. Works a treat for her side job and general browsing, and was cheap enough to not break the bank.

If windows 10 now requires 32GB after the update, then what will be left to support the required software she uses for her side job?

Already had to shave out a bloatload of temp files a week ago, since windows sucked all the free space up with them while trying to update.

I long for the days of Win2K only needing a gig.

Understandable to have some growth, but 32X is a bit much.
