Hardware memory increasing on PC

By Dylan Teo ·
Interesting to note that PCs needs to ever increasing the hardware memory and storage with each new release of OS.

Unix or Linux is much more forgiving and though love to have extra memory and storage but can make do with less.

Why is Microsoft designing something that fit rather than make something bigger with each release.

Consumers does not have a bottomless budget and spending power. Memory being cheaper is not the point. Now our PC is far more powerful than many Unix workstation but perform far less task. A Sun SS5 can do more with so much lesser than our PC.

Something is really wrong here with the OS and software design. Is it a sign for us to totally switch to Linux?
