Windows And so the smartphonification of the general purpose computer continues. This time around, though, it might actually be for the better. Microsoft has detailed two new features in Windows 8: refreshing and resetting your computer. Reinstalls will be a thing of the past.

SSH is on the order of kilobytes. Its not meaningful bloat.

<nitpick>So a friendly little 5KB Blaster/Sasser/Sobig that starts up when an infected WinXP box boots is no big deal?</nitpick>

What I also find interesting is that MS got a lot of flak for so many (!) versions of Win7 but when it comes to Linux/BSD then the overwhelming choice is actually a good thing and it's usually the users' fault for choosing the wrong distro. (Jesus f***, did I just defend Microsoft here?? That felt weird...dirty even) BTW, for what it's worth, most of my "DLL hell for Linux v.0.3" occurred with SUSE (granted, with *buntu too).
