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've been meaning to sue Commodore over my C64. I mean, it has 64K RAM. Why only 38911 bytes free to BASIC??! 20K used by the O/S? Unacceptable!

(By which I mean 20K of ROM which masked 20K of RAM. Detail is an elephant. Or irrelevant. Or whatever)
