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?

did someone say sex?


The word sex is commonly used as a synonym for the word gender in US English...

this subthread happening behind the scenes of my beautiful original post has reminded me more of the other kind of sex, the one with poop getting smeared around

Well I would have happily responded to you instead if you had bothered posting a response instead of just stopping with the drive-by "please dont be stupid" post... I don't think I was being stupid at all...

Unfortunately, someone else totally derailed the discussion with a completely off topic analogy about women and voting...

And yes, I agree - this has devolved into poop throwing ;)

Actually, sex is used to refer to the physical representation determined by ones chromosomes, whereas gender refers to the appearance. Most people use them interchangeably, but in clinical medicine it's important to make the distinction.

The word sex is also commonly used as a synonym for the word gender in US English... Im not a doctor, I wasn't speaking in clinical terms nor should I expect anyone reading this forum to interpret me that way, and I don't see how what you just wrote has anything to do with the topic at hand.

You argued that denying a woman the right to vote does not cause injury. I said it most certainly did. If you want to respond to that please do, but critiquing my choice of words or understand of English language is just derailing the discussion.
