I've looked around on the forums first and searched if any other topics had anything I could use, but didn't find much which could serve it's purpose. So I'll just ask here.
To give a little insight, I'm currently a high school student who studies computer sciences. Now for certain classes we need to use Microsoft software (e.g. Visual Studio). So I can't just switch to only Ubuntu and I know that Windows can take quite a bit of hard disk space already.
Now I'm a bit struggling with the issue on how much space I need to reserve for Ubuntu. I know that giving a precise number will be hard, but I can live with an estimate.
Basically, I will use it for the following things:
1. Coding in HTML, Java & Python
2. Learning how to use Ubuntu (e.g. bash scripts)
3. Learning about Ubuntu itself as in how it is coded, developed, maintained, etc.
Currently I have a laptop with 500GB hard drive, so I certainly got some space to work with.
