Linux bloat

Great article here on the bloatedness of Gnome and KDE.

The author , quite rightly , points out that there are millions of Win98 machines out there - probably with no more than 64mb of ram at most.

He just points out that we can't move them to KDE 3.2 or the latest Gnome because of the ram and processor requirements. And if they need to get new hardware, they'll just stick with the pre-installed Win XP anyway...

Food for thought... but then i'm rather partial to Xfce anyway.
