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?

"Is this now clear enough for you and Lucas to get?

No it isn't. Apparently the computer industry is completely different and impervious to any advertising laws whatsoever and when it's pointed out then everyone must be anti-Microsoft.

Thanks for the link by the way. I wasn't going to play the game of having to trawl Google for advertising law precedents that should be common knowledge so the idiots can drag their nonsense out even further.

Willful idiocy is all it is. Say something critical of Apple's business practices, and bam, you are anti-Apple. Say something critical of Microsoft, and bam, you are anti-Microsoft.

You are welcome but seriously, Googling "false advertising laws usa" gives the link I provided as the very first hit. Intellectual laziness is a part of this as well.

You made some excellent rebuttals in this thread. Thank you.
