Windows 7: Windows7 - time for a change?

Windows7 - time for a change?

My System partition is 60GB SSD with win7, userfiles and programs.
An other hd I use for games only and an external drive and lately google drive for private files

Alls good BUT my SSD is perma full. Regulary I've to clean up the temp folder and make room where I can. alone the windows folder eats 30GB (with no obvious data grave)

So im thinking about formatting the C , maybe even D while im at it , drive and do it all over
Maybe put the user folder on D, deleting my mail history (10GB ) etc.

1. Big Question first Win7 or Win8, or Win8.1 ?
2. How big are your win7/8 folders?
3. Any thoughts if the 60GB would make do for a linux/windows coop install?

Firstly, if possible, get a bigger SSD, say 128GB, do a full reinstall and use the HDD for user and Program data. You'll be able to have more of your most used games/software on the SSD.
