are you implying that the previous versions of either WEREN'T bloat? Back when processing power was the main bottleneck in most desktops, KDE and GNOME made the system so slow and over-incumbered that it was just like using Windows, which for me defeated the purpose. Now obviously, times have changed, and speed isn't one of the driving forces behind moving to a linux system, but the GUIs are still too huge. Give me a window manager that boots in about 2 seconds flat (WindowMaker or ICE) any day.

I'm sorry I only give money to a company that I feel I can actually get service from and right now that Isn't Netflix/Qwikster.

I'm sorry too, because right now it also isn't Sony/SNEI. Although they do have some pretty slick lawyer types working for them, it seems that's about all they got.
