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.

Bloat is a word used by people who usually have no idea what they are talking about.

The inner workings of the OS has been pretty much been overhauled since XP while keeping backwards compatibility (this includes bugs in previous version as well).

I can assure you that this is extremely difficult to do.

Possibly why Win RT is smaller than the predecessors'.
