Windows XP fits in 5 GB space. Just that it doesn't leave any space
for anything else to be installed after installing the drivers. ;) (my
experiment) If you just want an OS, XP is for you,Vista/7 are
definitely not.If you want a functional system along with the OS in 5
GB of space, yep, Linux is the way to go.
