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 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?

Note that if anyone notices that glaring screw-up, yes, I did mean 256MB. I think in the context it was said it should be an obvious mistake, but in case anyone is confused this is the clarification. 256MB really ain't shit these days, honestly... and for normal use, even a 2GB drive is too small as I pointed out in other replies. Even for acceptable-but-low-quality audio and video files files.
