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.

Sometimes MSI will leave files to "aid uninstallation". IIRC, Borland did this with Delphi 2005. It was very annoying. Something to do with a catalogue of files installed or similar. I've also encountered at least one installer that did the same so that features could be "installed on the fly" without the original medial being present. Some installers are just crap though and son't clean up properly.
