Microsoft "Microsoft has been absolutely pummeled in the press and in reader comments this week by pundits and customers alike. They feel cheated by the amount of free storage space available to them on the new line of Surface Pro devices. But is that criticism fair or even valid?" Spoiler alert: turns out, it isn't. Both devices have about the same free space available, and by creating a USB restore drive for Windows on the Surface, you can actually get a little more on the Surface Pro. Interestingly enough, Microsoft confirmed on Reddit that their original numbers - which caused the ruckus - were wrong, because they were based on pre-production hardware, with debug code and other additional stuff on it. Oh Microsoft.

..probably that most hardware vendors do a pretty poor job supporting operating-system-choice?
I do not claim FLOSS/*n*x is the better solution for every hardware, every use-case and every user.
But for me, my machine and my computing needs - I just love it ;)
..oh and my mum seems to get along well with it, too.

A pretty poor job supporting any operating system, also.

You speak like if you don't know that Windows can also do that.

And I hadn't seen that article until after I had posted here. Your point?
