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?

Though I agree that a clearer statement as to how much storage the Windows 8 OS uses is needed, I hate, I hate when people sue over such tripe. In Switzerland where I live, the maxium you can win from a law suit is 200,000 CHF. Big reason why Apple has not filed here, no money to be had.

It's a silly tablet anyway, you get what you pay for.
