//Just because you keep saying the same thing doesn't make it the proper definition cyclops. Bloat to you may be exactly what you said, bloat to me may be adding a new default theme, see what I'm saying? It's like I said before, we just have different definitions of bloat, so you don't have to keep forcing _your_ definition down my throat like it is the absolute be all end all what the word means. No where in any of my posts did I say feature bloat specifically, I just said bloat. Which to me can be memory usage, file size, number of applications, etc.

That's cool if you want to keep going in circles and all, but I've already said my hope for 4.4, so good luck with that.//

You keep using that word bloat. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I don't think you understand the concept of bloat.

Adding loosely-coupled applications that do not reside in RAM but are only loaded off disk & into RAM as needed is not bloat.

XFCE does not exhibit the undesirable features that are associated with bloat. About the only resource that this new version of XFCE would consume more of is hard disk space, and we are talking only a few megabytes of that.
