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?

Yes, that's very likely isn't it -- that Microsoft pays people to go around posting whatever they instruct, on little forums around the web.


Not sure about now, but some years ago Microsoft was a customer of the Arbuthnot Entertaiment Group, which hired people to do exactly that.

Shill programs are not a tinfoil hat theory, they are just part of the marketing business.

They certainly do, that was one issue the judge in the Oracle V Google case demanded, a list of people who was paid by each company to post information online.
