Is Windows 8 a Disk Hog

Does anybody know approximately how much space the non-enterprise version of Windows 8 takes up after being installed. In other words, is the disk footprint larger or smaller than the 26-32GB that Windows 7 takes up before apps are installed.

Can I ask WHY your Win7 installation is taking up SO mauch space?

The AVERAGE Win7 installation (Not including hyberfile and pagefile) is less than 15gigs.

My Win7 x64 Ultimate installation I reinstalled a week ago is only 20.3 gigs after having all of my progs installed and ALL updates.

After a quick test a Base Win7 ultiamte install on a 2gig ram system is 8.3gigs.
