Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

Because I care that I have control and possibly more importantly ownership of my data, and very little of my shit is up there on some random server that is not under my control. Anything I do have in the cloud is simply a backup (primarily pictures to be able to access on my phone without having to get a 32GB microSD card), and I have all the originals on my hard drive where they are going to stay. If I delete any copy, no doubt it will be the one stored on server machines far, far away.
