OS-bloat Through the Ages

iSuppli has a cute article tracking the effect of each new release of M$’s OS on DRAM volume. They reveal that “8” has had the least impact of any release all the way back to Lose 3.1. They suggest it’s bloat/DRAM requirements of the OS that have plunged along with emergence of non-Wintel stuff but it’s also a reflection of the willingness of the channel to plug up with M$’s stuff. ie. With “8” the world is just dipping a toe in the pool instead of diving in.
