That is one of the reasons I use Linux, I can get it in any size down to
ittybitty systems
that run on very minimal storage.

Asking MS to pare down Windows, is well I cannot think of a comparison. Now
that they
have monetized the desktop, even less...

You could go in and start yanking the fluff and junk out but you may find
that you have
removed something that some other software depends on.
