Convoluted URL intertwingling == bloatware? cancer?
Grif, thanks. I'm just going to opt out of the whole process. All those dynamic FETCHes
of bits of miscellany just eat up too much ram, cpu and bandwidth; creeping acromegaly due
to these naught-but-pseudo-spyware chunklets of JS / gif / jpg... is just as noxious as Windows'
uncontrolled expansion, it's the old IBM ruse translated into the PC world, "...yeah, we got yer
OS rightcheer, Pally, butya need more memory and a more powerful CPU and oh them
HDs is really improved, we'll make yas a dealio here..."
PC's are nothing more than souped-up desktop publishing engines, but they're working
for everone Else, not us! Maybe we could just lump all this into the generic term Sneakyware??**
I'd call that an amazing sales job. And we dint even notice!!
....wonder if anyone's thought of something like Windows-Lite?
oh, yeah.. Linux!!!!
** darn. several Google references to Sneakyware already exist; well, PMTA, I guess.
And here I thought I was being inventive!! Used to be aHEAD of the curve. Must be gettin' old(er).
