What do you mean by storage space? Is it taking up less space then Windows 7?

No sorry, it's the new drive pooling features. Almost like software raid but with better capabilities. Unfortunately the write speeds are pretty slow but that's the sacrifice for the increased functionality.

Anyway it's at least something useful unlike Metro which is pretty much terrible for everything so far. If you don't have a reason to run it outside of curiosity then I'd suggest not wasting the time. I've used it on a tablet and didn't like it and Windows Phone's lack of success speaks for itself. It's even worse on the desktop, particularly the shoehorned start tiles which is just such a bad idea it boggles the mind. Oh well, they'll learn the hard way as usual. Even a lot of the diehard Microsoft fanboys at Ars are panning Windows 8, it's receiving some nearly Vista levels of vitriol so far.
