Windows 10 October 2018 Update Storage Space Needed

Ahead of next month's release of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft is warning users to make sure there's sufficient storage space for the upgrade, or there may be trouble.

The alert is targeted at users of systems with limited storage space, which may fail to initialize after running Windows Update.

Microsoft singles out "thin clients" and "embedded systems". But since Windows 10 demands around 10GB of space to install, it could be taken as a general warning for owners who've skimped on PC costs by buying Windows laptops with 32GB flash storage.

So will Microsoft be testing systems first, and only offer the update to those that have sufficient storage-space available?    Or will it push the update to everyone, resulting in initialization failures???

EDIT:   I see the article answers my question:  "Windows Update does not check systems for adequate space requirements before it initializes."  :(

As you saw, not at this point.  However, during the Windows Insider Mixer earlier this week that issue was raised and it is being worked on.
