That's a very arrogant and ignorant thing to say and quite clearly shows how much thought you put behind the whole thing..


Care to elaborate how it's either arrogant or ignorant?

It's a fact of life that having ~ 20 megs more libraries mapped in virtual memory only hurts people who have way too little ram. It is not a concern in desktop/laptop/netbook form factor, and even the crummiest ubuntu-capable tablets will probably match the requirement as well. Catering to that crowd is not in the best interest of Canonical, those are well served by ligthweight window managers like fluxbox.
