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

Mint may require 9 gigs, but Linux doesn't. There are quite a few light-weight Linux distros out there ... or you could simply roll your own if none of them quite meet your needs. I recommend checking out what the TinyCore folks are doing, for example.

As for your "hardly a problem" comment, for some of us it's the principle of the thing. Why the fuck should I be forced to give up 32 gigs of the disk I paid good money for on the whims of Redmond's marketing department? If it were an engineering decision, I might be persuaded ... but it clearly isn't.
