Depends on what you want to do with it. I would at least give your self 20gb to work with.

60GB is plenty. If you doing some intense gaming or video editing you may want more space. But for word process, internet browsing,.

i use mint 90% of the time and vista just when needed (like word processing, i cant stand open office, dont ask why because there is no logical reason). i was just looking at another distro to muck around with, and learn more about linux, as mint is the first distro ive used
