Ubuntu definitely pops up a message when the disk space gets low (as 
long as it doesn't happen too quickly!), and offers help cleaning up to 
make more space. I can't remember exactly which program is included in 
the link: it could be baobab, a.k.a. Disk Usage Analyser.

I saw it a couple of times while I was dual-booting this work PC, but 
then I removed the Windows partition and I haven't seen it since!
