If I download and install the latest and greatest version of Mandriva or Debian or whatever and it has all kinds of "cool/new" features that I can't get to work on my laptop that is a PII 166 mhz, then can I say Linux is "bloated"?
Especially since so many Linux zealots on here rant and rave on how Linux will run so fast on just about anything. If they are so right, man, I'm taking up dumpster diving and finding me a sweet ole x386 for my personal pleasure. It should be a speed demon on Linux.
I can't uninstall all those cool new Linux features unless I take the next 2 years, read a library or two of books, watch a few videos, and otherwise piss away a vast swath of my time learning a new OS.
