Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

I don't want a "modern" machine, I don't want to have to recompile anything. I want to actually use the computer to do things, FAST! and securely, but not system administration. I want the computer to make my life easier, not the opposite. GNU/Linux and Windows both FAIL at this (I don't like to say Linux, because the kernel itself is really good, but the userland is junk).
