We have a laptop that was used with windows for just under four
years. Main applications are Office for excel/word/powerpoint,
Outlook for email, Coreldraw for publication figures. Disk usage
is approximately 90GB, of which the user's own files are 45GB,
in a partition of 175GB. The partition was originally 423GB,
but I carved the space for my linux system out of it.
