Windows space dilemma

It has grown too big

Windows XP:
fit, just barely, onto 2GB SSD, 600 MB left for other files

Windows Vista:
just barely useable with 16GB SSD, 3GB is free

Windows 7:
20GB SSD, 3GB free

Windows 10:
40GB SSD, 10GB free
but all modern software is huge! 10GB doesnt help much

    What's the dilemma? Storage is cheaper than it was in 2007

    Are you too moronic to disable hibernation and tune your pagefile allocation? Maybe loonix is more your alley.

        Liar liar pants on fire. Bullshit, if those are tamed, your install shouldn't even be half of those sizes.

    You have to be extremely poor to not be able to buy a decent SSD. 120gb one will cost you around 15$ or less and will provide you with more than enough storage for shitposting for at lest a decade (I assume that you dont do much more than that on your computer since you care about software not being super optimized nowadays).

      Ah yes, the classic "throw hardware at a software problem" solution. In 10 years Windows installs will be 100GB not counting any programs and you'll be telling people build a server rack if they want to run programs locally.

        What's your solution? Remembering that M$OFT doesn't care what you think and you have zero leverage.

          Quit using modern Windows then. I use Linux and Windows XP for everything.

        video game industry is doing the same thing, now games are 300gb+ and showing no signs of stopping. clever way to take physical discs/ownership out of peoples hands and give them something digital that can be revoked at any moment.

        i swear to god this globohomosexual you vill own nozzing shit is getting fricking old.

          I don't play modern video games for a number of reasons, that being one.

      physical hard discs on the year 2002 could have had been 2GB altough extremely rare

      they were 2GB in 1996 and it was possible to connect drive from year 1996 into a pentium 3 machine on the year 2002 and then use it for windows XP, altough most popular drive sizes were already 20GB by then

    I remember Windows XP 64 ballooning up to ~8GB when fully updated, which is still about 4GB less than any version that came later.

      it does that by storing old update files in a hidden folder, those can be deleted if you know what to delete to free up 2-4 GB of space after all updates are done

    Damn Small Linux used to fit inside 32mb, but now can barely fit inside of 700mb. Just the firmware is 32mb, let alone drivers etc.
