One 40 GB Seagate hard drive: contains Windows XP and Yoper Pack V1.

One 20 GB Seagate hard drive: contains Mandrake Linux 9.1, but it usually has LindowsOS on it.

C Drive = 40 Gig
D drive = 4 Gig

My original C Drive was 20 Gig - it was replaced by the current C drive when it failed (thankfully within the manufacturer's warranty period). It is back with the manufacturer for replacement. When the new one comes back it will replace the 4 Gig D Drive which is an oldie out of another computer.

Laptop = 20 Gig

60GB in this machine (a 40 and a 20). Several other GBs lying around the place, or sitting on other computers in the basement.

>>> ...but it usually has LindowsOS on it.

Any chance I could grab a copy of Lindows from you (or anyone else who might have it)???

I don't think so. It costs money to buy LindowsOS and so I don't think I am allowed to copy it and give it to someone else. Most of the operating system is under the GPL but not all of it (Click-N-Run, Netscape, the installer, etc.).

I'm taking a reverse pride attitude here with my 1.6Gb 5yr old IBM.

AND its got over 500megs free. Lean and mean is the motto.

60 gig
40 gig x2 (raid)
20 gig
20 gig external usb2
10 gig
6.5 gig
4 gig x2
3.2 gig
2 gig x5
1.2 gig
500mb x2
300 mb 1
250 mb x5
127mb x4
80 mb x1

Roughly 221 gigs spread amongst 8 computers and various draws and shelves.
I remember when I had an dx 100 and was disappointed i couldn't afford a 1.2 gig and had to settle for an 810 mb but was consoled by the salesman " it will take a while to fill that up"

guess I've overcompensated

Interesting - I read somewhere that although they're allowed to charge for it, they can't stop people from legally copying and distributing it.

I think that because it has been purchased you now have the right to change and manipulate and distribute the OS in any way you deem fit. At least this is how every other distribution works.

They all started from the one copy made by the Allmighty One - exported code derived from UNIX and played with till they could play no more. We salute you oh great one, Linus Torvalds

And now I will say "its not the size that counts, its how you use it".

I am manipulating files to my content on a 30GB - factory standard Packard Bell.
I've had no need to complain so far, as it works just fine for me..... really

hrmph
You lot and your BIG drives. hrmph
Must be suffering from social inadequacies or something :|

PIII 616Mhz: 17GB... used up about 3.5GB
PI 100Mhz: 850MB... used up about 400 MB

As raddersnz said, I've never every had a problem, never ever gone near or over 5GB, total (both PC) Why do you need so much? What have you got in there? *Wonder why people with multiple OSs say they need xxx GB of space.*

Hmmm... I see ram and CPU as been more important....

Interesting...

You're right, I can "change and manipulate and distribute the OS", but I would have to take out the non-GPL parts first (Netscape, the installer, Click-N-Run). If I did this, however, I would just be left with plain Debian.
