    I just picked up a Stream 7 (16 GB) to use as an e-reader and can confirm that the Bing version of 8.1 on it only takes up about 4 GB on the MMC. The restore partition is even smaller ... a bit over 2 GB, I believe.

    As someone who just picked up a second hand Venue 8 Pro as a companion device, and who uses his Lumia 1520 for work on the odd occasion, I can honestly say that completely removing the desktop wouldn't be as much of a concern if the MUI version of remote desktop handles remote apps well.

    That helps, but in my mind, nothing is gained by dropping the desktop. Some people may not need it, but I do, and those that don't are not benefited by its absence. I can live with it though so long as there is a buy up option.
