One cubic metre of water is actually 1000 litres. I'm not sure I'd want to be boiling a couple of cubic metres of water each time I turn the jug on, let alone try to drink a 2L bottle of Coke.
You do realise that 8 megapixels is the maximum amount of pixels?
I personally do not have any need for 8 megapixel images. I have my 5 megapixel camera set to take images at 3 megapixels. I don't need all of those extra pixels and the file sizes are much smaller.

The idea about microsoft bundling a CD is a good one, however I don't think that it would be nesessary for them include applications from other providers on this CD.
The whole point is that these components are not installed by default as part of the operating system. It they came on an optional extra CD it should be okay. Customers would be able to have a Windows operating system without the bloat of IE, WMP etc, yet would still be able to optionally install them off a supplied CD.
This solution would allow OEMs and geeks to customise their OS without IE, WMP and the like.
