.NET (dotGNU too) "Four short years ago, Microsoft unveiled its new framework/engine for programming and running applications in a virtual environment, and the world was stunned. Microsoft had introduced a run-time environment that was for the first time a true 'write once, run everywhere' implementation, but that was far from being the end. With .NET 3.0 on the loom, NeoSmart Technologies takes a look at how far .NET has come and just how long it can keep going."

Incremental, sure...this drastic? Nah. How much greater were the hw reqs for moving from NT to 2000? How about 2000 to XP? Not much.

How about Gnome 2.8 to 2.14? KDE 3.0 to 3.5? The memory consumption for both of those DEs have actually been reduced considerably. That trend is set to continue as well.

thats, true Gnome and KDE bot at the toolkit level and DE level have tryed to lower mem/sysreq but vista, is a 5 year project look at sysreq form gnome and kde and compare that to there lastest.

and there is tons of low rights framework and other stuff in there and i am sure that crap takes a hit on preformence.
