Windows Interesting little tidbit from the Reddit AMA session with Microsoft's Surface team. One Redditor wondered just how much disk space Windows RT takes up - in other words, if you buy the 32GB Surface RT tablet, how much space is left for your stuff? It turns out that while Windows 8 RT is considerably smaller than its Windows 7 x86 predecessor, it's still huge by mobile standards.

That's because Windows RT isn't a "mobile" OS, per se, it's the ARM version of W8, which is an OS that runs desktop computers, laptops, tablets (but not phones). So it's not going to be as small as a phone OS like iOS, WP7/8, Android.
