Do you really want to set this requirement so low?

Do you think that there are (m)any people with hard drives smaller
than 20/30 GB?

AFAIK one magic bound of disk sizes were the disk with 8GB capacity,
which would be sorted out with this requirement.
(Not the technical boundary but the real one from produced hard disks).

As one might want to store data on a standalone machine and/or want to
install some additional software it would be nice (from a user point
of view) to have enough space left on the partitions.
