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.

Yeah, right... That one folder is a constant problem on computers with smaller drives (SSD for example). WinSXS consumes 7-8 GB of space on both my computers that have been installed quite recently. After some heavy usage and more apps installed, that folder grows up to 11-16 gigabytes!
