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?

The free space comment wasn't meant as an argument against your point, just general commentary following from the article.

But I still think Windows RT is much more a desktop style OS than it is a mobile OS.
As far as I can tell it's not missing anything that is in Windows 8 so far as content that's actually on the disk. It's missing capabilities, sure, but then so is a corporate desktop with a bunch of restrictive policies applied, and that's how I see Windows RT: a full windows installation with some restrictions applied, and on a CPU architecture that's new for the platform, which limits application and driver availability
