Microsoft "Microsoft has been absolutely pummeled in the press and in reader comments this week by pundits and customers alike. They feel cheated by the amount of free storage space available to them on the new line of Surface Pro devices. But is that criticism fair or even valid?" Spoiler alert: turns out, it isn't. Both devices have about the same free space available, and by creating a USB restore drive for Windows on the Surface, you can actually get a little more on the Surface Pro. Interestingly enough, Microsoft confirmed on Reddit that their original numbers - which caused the ruckus - were wrong, because they were based on pre-production hardware, with debug code and other additional stuff on it. Oh Microsoft.

I think you're either getting your timeline confused, or just being a dick intentionally. At the time I made the comment you jumped in on, I wasn't aware of Windows also causing bricking on those laptops; indeed, you brought it to my attention. I didn't go back and change anything; my comment stood on the knowledge I had at the time.

You are the one being disingenuous, claiming that I said what I did about Samsung and Linux with prior knowledge of Windows issues on those machines. Either get your shit straight or piss off. I don't care either way, child.
