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?

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.


I didn't claim it had anything to do with the topic at hand, I just merely provided some insight as to the words "sex" and "gender."

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


There's not much to respond. Inequality does not equal injury, they're two entirely different concepts.

but critiquing my choice of words or understand of English language is just derailing the discussion.


If you see it that way. I never meant to "derail" anything with it.

Uh, did you even read that thing yourself? If the law said women aren't allowed to vote then there would indeed be no legal redress and it would not be an injury, just as the dictionary link you gave says.



This one says the same thing.

And here, too.

I don't get your point.
