Windows Interesting little tidbit from the Reddit AMA session with Microsoft's Surface team. One Redditor wondered just how much disk space Windows RT takes up - in other words, if you buy the 32GB Surface RT tablet, how much space is left for your stuff? It turns out that while Windows 8 RT is considerably smaller than its Windows 7 x86 predecessor, it's still huge by mobile standards.

A core installation has nothing in it.

It actually has everything except desktop. So desktop related stuffs take up 10G.

It doesn't. You'll have to add roles which will add to that install size significantly.
