for ubuntu latest version i recommend you 10GB at least , swap size depends on how much ram you have !

Hi, I think it depends on what with linux are you going to do,
latest ubuntu release requires a larger amount of space than previous, and so.. if you think you'd just browsing and doc writing, you may install it on 16gb (14GB for / and 2GB swap)

If you're planning to install world of warcraft I think you'll need at least 60GB for / Smile

If Yiou do not have experience with Linux
then try the Live CD.
Then You do not need any space at all.

But every Linux distribution requires another space.

Puppy does not need much space.

It depends upon the linux distros you wish to use.
My Ubuntu 13.10 has used 6 GB disk space now

It depends on the distro you are using and the aim it is made for. Some like DSL(Damn Small Linux) is just 40 MBs! I know there is a distro which is just 11 MB. However I cannot recall its name. There are also some distros which are quite big (taking around 2 GB or more) But on average I think they all are around 500 MB.

if you know a linux distro size less than muLinux - 1 floppy disk 1.44M, please update me.

I did try and use quite many linux distros before and now I use mainly below 4.
They are for usb / cd / desktop or notebook / server.

If you just want to get some feeling of Linux using your usb drive with capable hardware.
I suggest to have a look of (1)www.slax.org

Linux world is too amazing.
LiveCD linux, (2)Knoppix is a good start.
Want to install a copy to your desktop/notebook, think about
Debian-based/Gentoo-based/Pacman-based/RPM-based/Slackware-based
visit wiki for more info.
Personally, for desktop/notebook in general, I prefer (3) Slackware.
for server machine in general, I prefer RPM-based : (4) Scientific Linux(SL).
