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?

Don't feed trolls, people

Really? I loaded up this article expecting some actual conversing (insane, right?) and all I get is nested comment after nested comment of people arguing with a known troll.

Please stop. It isn't hard.

The article itself is a troll.

Nobody has mentioned Nintendo doing exactly the same thing.

Regardless of who it is it's still wrong I'm afraid. Advertising storage space and then leaving a user with half of the advertised storage space is plain ridiculous.

Oh, and you're still a troll who frankly doesn't know what he's arguing half the time when he loses arguments. Hint: It's at that point that you stop typing.

This is the problem I have with OSNews. You get some excellent articles and intelligent conversation, interrupted by a bunch of idiots who ruin it for everyone. Too bad.
