No where in any of my posts did I say feature bloat specifically, I just said bloat. Which to me can be memory usage, file size, number of applications, etc.

And that's the problem. It's several different kind of "bloat".

Memory usage and file size are related to Code Bloat. Number of applications relates to Functionality Bloat (if a modular approach has been taken). Many small modules are better than one big module.

When talking about bloat you have to specify what you're talking about, unless you want to be dragged through a flame war on the definition on "bloat".
