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.

What you say is true. The only thing is, it shouldn't be that way because that's how inferior software become dominant. Think BeOS compared to Windows.

The behavior of competitors doing what you describe amounts to nothing other than swindling and some measures should be taken against that.

Besides, we do have time, there's still a few years left before planet earth is inhabitable ;)
