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?

GNOME 3 is especially hilarious; it's more feature-free than ever before and probably getting worse by the week, yet Debian is dropping it for Xfce because the damn thing can no longer even fit on a single CD-ROM.


Before speculating, better ask Debian committee themselves:

Gnome is still the default in Debian and its packages are rebuilt in xz format to fit in CD-ROM.

They had switched to XFCE, and then switched back:

Phoronix was right, so it looks like Jeremy Bicha didn't know what was going on.

GNOME is the default today and could still be the default for release.

Very reassuring.
