I have NetBSD 7.1 installed on an Eee PC 1000 (8GB SSD). The "system" (kernel, system/userland binaries, X server/clients, compiler, man pages, log files) consumes ~650MiB. The sources (kernel + all system/userland apps, S, compiler, all "supplemental packages" like OO/KDE/asterisk, etc.) consume another ~2GiB. No swap space configured (cuz it's an SSD).

I suspect this is a tiny fraction of what a BARE W7 installation occupies!
