Virtual Hard Disk wizard defaults to file size less than recommended for Ubuntu 18

Using VirtualBox 6.0.0 r127566 (Qt5.6.2) on host Windows 7 SP1 amd64.

I am creating a new VM using the GUI wizard. The Create Virtual Machine wizard detects I am intending to install Ubuntu and set the "Version" to "Ubuntu (64-bit)". The Virtual Hard Disk wizard defaults to a 10GB hard disk.

The download page for Ubuntu 18 (Desktop) at suggests 25Gb of free hard drive space.

All Ubuntu versions default to the same size, there's no differentiation between the versions. And since Ubuntu 4.10 required a little less than 0.5 GB, 10 GB seems like an overkill, no?

It's up to you, the end user, to "order the computer" according to the specifications.

I think that at best this ticket could be set as a Request For Enhancement (RFE).
