Windows Interesting little tidbit from the Reddit AMA session with Microsoft's Surface team. One Redditor wondered just how much disk space Windows RT takes up - in other words, if you buy the 32GB Surface RT tablet, how much space is left for your stuff? It turns out that while Windows 8 RT is considerably smaller than its Windows 7 x86 predecessor, it's still huge by mobile standards.

They seem to be redefining the golden standard for the "embedded" systems. From now one everyone will have to use boatload of disk space. Not using it? fill it with garbage! you need to fill into the MS standards.

Yeah, they are pretty hilarious. They surely have no clue what "embedded" means.
I'm actually constantly amazed on how they even manage to sell their crappy toys and toy OSs. This is beyond me.
