Recommended space for Windows 7

Installing Windows 7? Do you wonder how much space is recommended for a Windows 7 installation?
Well, it looks like Microsoft has two answers for that simple question (13030MB and 16384MB)…

The answer is simple: It’s 13030 MB, according to the Windows 7 installer.

The question is, why does Microsoft recommend something else on their website:

Windows 7 System Requirements @ Microsoft.com

Quote Microsoft.com:

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

On top of that you will need additional 15 GB of free disk space for Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC. That would make it 35GB for Windows 7 x64!
