Windows "Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, due on February 9th, will have a smaller amount of storage space than expected. A company spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge that the 64GB edition of Surface Pro will have 23GB of free storage out of the box. The 128GB model will have 83GB of free storage. It appears that the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model." Oh Microsoft.

Most of the time, if Windows won't boot, it is due to a hardware failure, but sometimes data just becomes corrupted, and everything tests fine. Also, the case where a computer loses power installing updates is quite common, and it's often beyond a restore point, or a repair.

Nothing just becomes corrupted, users lie all the time.

I suspect other OSes would have problems coming back to life after being left in some half state. I normally have a system image I can go back to if there are any problems.
