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?

My operating systems occupy 3-4 GB each for Ubuntu 12.10, Fedora 17, Fedora 18 (beta), and Linux Mint 14 RC. Looks like about 30GB for Win7
