Where's 'Steven' McQueen when we need him?
Bloat is not an oversight or a mistake. It's not something that gets corrected with the next version of the product you bought. Bloat's a state of mind that's permeated the commercial software industry to its roots.
Bloat means more than just megabytes too big: it means downright shoddy, sloppy work; it means not caring a hoot what happens.
Bloat is akin to the medieval surgeon just stuffing his gloves, hanky, and what have you into the stomach of the patient he's just operated on, because - 'why not'.
What PC users don't normally understand is that bloat is a condition of their software and hardly anyone else's. And knowing that, there are only two things you can do: completely ignore it or put your foot down and fight back.
