I've been running a complete system with KDE, OOo, Gimp etc on my laptop on a 7GB partition for 3 years. It does require some cleaning up every so often (remove distfiles etc), but it's enough. So 20GB should be plenty. For things that need a lot of space to build (OOo), you can use binary packages. Cheers Benjamin
