      You have discovered the secret!

       

      "feature creep" requires more cpu, ram, hard disk, video speed...

      John, yea, well that was in the days before bloatware, GUI interfaces, sound effects, 3D effects and all the other fluff we don't really need, but the programmers think is just too cool to not have.

       I was talking with the Xerox help desk, and the help desk guy posed the idea that if we could get Windows 98 to run on the latest hardware, it would probably be so freaking fast that it would just boggle our minds.

      Which now has me wondering whether the compulsion for bloatware has any effect of driving hardware developers toward more speed.
      Which then encourages the bloatware developers ...

      Bingo. But if the programmers could only take a step back, and do a bare bones version of an OS, it could be super fast. And without all the conflicting fluff, it might even be rather stable.

      It's not the programmers in charge of the features...

       

      Also, remember the programmers often have fast high end computers, so they don't really evaluate program performance on older hardware.

       

      The feature creep is driven by trying to make more money by adding more features in software, both the o/s and the applications programs.

       

      You want a bare bones O/S? go Linux.... oh, you want a whole lot of cool software? Then you are stuck with Windoze...
