That would be my best guess. They can use a lot of CPU-cycles. Most linux and mac laptops probably don't have antivirus installed.

The lead in this project - Terje Berntsen, says that the variation from '90s and in the '00s could be explained by natural variations. In the 00' the natural variations is canceling out the rise in CO_2 emissions, and in the '90s it was amplifying it.

eclipse is SWT/JFACE, not AWT/SWING. Doesnt use 500 megs on my system...around 320(eclipse classic 3.7). SWT is also very fast GUI wise compared to swing, as it uses JNI do display native GUI elements. Who cares about ram usage on clients these days anyway...its cheap. Most systems have 4GB+ RAM now anyway. Vuze(former azureus) and lotus notes are also using SWT for GUI.
