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

They are all the same. Planned obsolescence is how business works.

All these folks moaning that their 32Gb storage machine wont run the latest version of WIndows - didn't you realise these ultra low end dirt cheap devices were designed to be as long lasting as an Android phone which you would bin (put in for recycling) after 2 -3 years because Google's clusterfuck of an OS will never be updated on your otherwise adequate phone.

Sorry folks - all the tech companies are behaving the same way

Microsoft , Google, Apple ( ok - a bit longer support for the OS but not indefinite - I suppose the iDevice will have developed an unrepairable fault before the OS stops being supported )

Other consumer equipment - built in sat navs, etc in cars, upgradable washing machines ( the updates were promised for my AEG but never appeared)

Smart TV ( Apps & OS abandoned after a few months in some cases)

Broadband routers - your mileage may vary but very few will support more that 12 months

consumer IOT stuff - just throw it all away as it was built to a price which didn't allow upgrades or security fixes of any sort
