on the company notebook I am still on windows 7. the disk is 250GB with more
applications than office and many documents, diagrams etc it is now at
~170GB

so you see 120 is not that much for windows.

At home I have a virtual machine with windows7 where I run visio mostly but
have the data on the share. I had to increase disk to 70GB recently after
seriously cleaning up.

I need to use that crap for money making ... oh and part of this 170GB is
occupied by cygwin cause you need a more or less decent shell if you have
to work with servers.
