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?

...Use some common sense...

If only Microsoft had used some and not released Surface RT with a not fit for purpose storage option. Indefenseable, though (IANAL) I've no idea if the righteous legal redress will actually come to pass, hopefully the damage to it's brand by the publicity and from the suckers who,unbeknownst/foolishly, end up with one damages them sufficiently to make them think commonsensicaly in future.......pigs might fly, comes to mind

Considering how Microsoft tends to eventually dominate the fields they decide to focus on (OS, GUI, office suites, consoles - all new areas for MS at some point), common sense seems not lacking in them. In hate groups of MS, OTOH...
