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'm not defending Gnome growing in size if and only if there wasn't any functionality added, but that is not the case.


Well, if we had as much more % of functionality as we see more % in size, that would be magnificent. Sad thing is, all this isn't a unique "feature" of Gnome, a lot of Linux apps follow this same path of growing more in size than in features.
