Windows "Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, due on February 9th, will have a smaller amount of storage space than expected. A company spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge that the 64GB edition of Surface Pro will have 23GB of free storage out of the box. The 128GB model will have 83GB of free storage. It appears that the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model." Oh Microsoft.

"All of these people talking about a desktop OS taking up more space than a mobile OS need to look outside the Microsoft compound. I have Linux Mint 14, plus a few apps, and some games, installed on a 15 GB partition on my ultrabook. I'm nowhere near fully using that."

How big is your recovery partition?

Do you mean his home partition ? AFAIK, most Linux distros have no such thing as a recovery partition, and I'm positive that Mint hasn't.
