Comment Three reasons (Score 4, Insightful) 299

I can think of three reasons why nobody WTFM:

1. It's hard. Would you want to write a manual for Excel or 3ds Max? I wouldn't. Where to begin and how to organize it?
2. It's time consuming. Software is bigger than ever, at least on the desktop.
3. It's not sexy.

Comment Re:Comparing total memory usage is stupid (Score 1) 258

If all you're running is one application, then you don't need a desktop. If you're multitasking, then of course you want your desktop to be fast, it should be up there in priority at all times. So caching stuff for the desktop is a good idea. Besides, it takes way longer to load stuff from the hard drive than to free some memory so an application can allocate some for its own use.

At first glance, the products do look quite similar, and this eWeek article has some interesting evidence, including suspicious user registrations by Google employees and an attempt by Google to hire off ReframeIt's lead engineer."
