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?

What the idiots on this thread are wanting is a specific law that says 'Users must get x bytes of free space' in order to dig themselves out of this hole without the faintest idea how this works legally. It's something I'm not going to do. I've argued why computer products are not a special case ("Oh, everyone does this!" is not a valid argument) and that's exactly what is going to happen in this case in the article.

You're the one who said several laws & cases are on the books in several countries that tackle this "issue", yet fail to provide even a single one as proof. You're got yourself backed into a corner, called on your BS, and ever since have been lashing out like a wounded animal in a last ditch effort to escape the burden of proof of your own fantasy claims.

You've already humiliated yourself, why you keep doing it is beyond me. I guess you think if you bark loud enough, nobody will notice you don't have any bite.
