Are there any figures available for the amount of space required for a clean install of 12.04?
A few years ago I was fool enough to try and save a few $$ by buying a netbook with a hard drive of only 4GB. I've been running 10.04 on it satisfactorily, but the $$ I saved had to be spent on a slot card to give me space for my files.
Now I'd like to go for 12.04 but I'm wondering about space. If it won't fit, will I be given a warning right at the start that there is insufficient space or will I find out the hard way? I don't want to risk messing up an OS that is working just fine, though a little out of date.
