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?

Well, for the past five years, Windows has had this crazy feature called Libraries, which I think was designed to emulate the behavior of Linux's home folder. The downside of libraries on Windows RT is that they are the only place you can put things you want to show up in your photo viewer or music player. Anyone with half a wit can add more folders, on different drives or SD cards, to a library, but 90% of users don't have that, and won't be able to figure out why. Also, for music downloads from whatever service Microsoft is using, I doubt you'd be able to choose a destination, in Windows RT.
