#3 Here's his LinkedIn profile. I checked a few places and he doesn't seem to be the serial litigant at this point in his career.

#4 It's a Microsoft product. Have they ever shipped lightweight code? Ever? He's lucky it runs at all.

On a related note, I understand why a 2TB hard drive does not hold 2TB's of data. It's OK. I get it. But the excuses ring hollow for SSD's.

#6 Correct me if I'm wrong here, but my understanding is that most of the difference in advertised capacity vs formatted capacity comes from how capacity is calculated. With RAM you use multiples of 1024. HD manufacturers use multiples of 1000. So what happens when you start using RAM as an HD? Use the lower number and sell me less RAM than you advertised.
