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?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Are you drunk or something? I thought this article and discussion was about a *lack* of free space due to the OS hogging it up (specifically, Windows 8), and you go on about... 256GB drives? What? Can you put one of those things in a Surface? And should we really be expected to throw away even more money on yet another product because the original product itself is inadequate right off the shelf? Sounds like an unnecessary waste to me, and an unnecessary pat on the back to all the bloatware producers of the world.


Oh yeah because on a portable device I am going to take more than 10 1080p movies (on a 720p screen) and 2million albums and 4 zillion word documents.

It stinks of first world problems.
