Since when is having a light-weight OS a bad thing? Haven't people been harping on MS enough for having bloated OSes?

Sure, make allowances for multiple-core and multiple CPUs on the not-so-low end, but making the minimum requirement a single CPU was definitely smart on their end.

Having a light weight OS isn't a bad thing, but just as bloat is bad, so is keeping it small for the sake of keeping it small. If we're sacrificing a feature rich OS for no other reason than to support hardware from 10+ years ago, then something needs to change. Computers are dirt cheap these days, so there's very little excuse to not upgrade if it's so much of an issue for you that you're demanding MS design it's OS around your 10 year old computer.

If they employ these methods, their risk should reduce significantly, as well as repo costs, and therefore be reflected in nice big loan rate drops.

There fixed that for you.

Never gonna happen. Most people just read the headline then jump right to the comments section to roll around like pigs in slop flaming each other. News sites rely on traffic for revenue/value. I don't know about you but I certainly perceive a story as being of less value when there is no comments section.

How do you know you don't posses "coding" to process information in a particular way and apply it in a new circumstance, because that sounds exactly like what you "learned' I'm sure your train of thought was "what if i do THIS" i.e. going through your list of available problem solving abilities.

Your code should be more efficient!
