When is the next big update coming? May/June? That would make it 1905/6?
May 2019
and it will still be version 1903 but will stay in the RP ring for the whole month of April and a public release in late May

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/08/releasing-the-may-2019-update-to-the-release-preview-ring/

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/04/improving-the-windows-10-update-experience-with-control-quality-and-transparency/

Microsoft isn't gonna rush the 1903 version like they did with 1809 and look what happened to 1809 when that one first came out early Oct. 2018 - major fiasco as this Softpedia news article pointed out:

I get-Not applicable to your computer, my OS build is 18362.53
That's a 1809 Build, which is current.

Your 1903 build is not a public release. aka Fast Ring only.

Default:
~500 MB OEM recovery (this can be deleted but I don't bother) ; 100 MB EFI; the rest is Windows and other physical/logical drive(s) (if you have them)




Other stuff:

.NET Frameweork is the latest 4.8 version by default
and they added Windows Sandbox which is off by default

Many places. Including the first post of this thread, which has links to ESDs(and a decrypter tool to create ISOs with them). Or, if you prefer a slightly less complicated method, you can use the Media Creation Tool to download the latest version(1903) in ISO form or use it to directly create bootable install media. You can also download ISOs of any version here.

I'm not sure about how many gigs. I didn't pay attention last time I clean installed it. I'd guess ~50-60GB. Maybe a bit(or a lot) less. Maybe a bit(but not too much) more.

windows uses more space the more RAM you have (hibernate/page files) so there is no precise number, 30GB would be the bare minimum to install, i'd prefer 60GB
