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?

It stinks of first world problems.


I think someone has been reading memes too much and doesn't anymore know what the meaning of this particular one is.

The point is that someone is making a class action lawsuit on the fact they can't quite have as many films sitting in their hardrive.

No, the point is that people believe they are paying for ~30GB useable storage but get much less than what they're paying for. There's nothing wrong with suing over that.

Agreed. Besides, given that this is a tech forum, I think everything discussed here by definition is going to be a first world problem.
