BloatWare Hall of Shame


Trillian (Version 3 and Above)

Comment: version 0.8X or 0.7X were good.
         Now it's just useless bloatware.
         Cpu hog, resource hog. Mouse
         stops moving when you load it up
         Uses extremely bloaty XML too.
         Looks like it came from Toys R Us.

MSN Messenger Comment: Banner ads, ugly skin, white disgusting color, 12 year old smileys resource hog, opens with Outlook Express without your authorization. Tries to be aerodynamic when it should be square. Doesn't even match Windows XP Toys R Us theme..
OpenOffice (OpenOffice.org) Comment: Absolutely disgusting Java code behind this one. CPU pegs to 100 for several minutes even if you just move your mouse or press a key, or sit idle. Has some more features than MS Office, but overall, extremely unusable software. Even MS Excel 2000 still loads up fast.
StarOffice Comment: See open office. SUN steals the code from volunteers and takes a profit, so they are basically the same program
Mozilla Comment: Unbearably slow. Screen feels like it's locked up even when visiting text based websites. Some cool features, but basically an unusable browser. If you have a 10Ghz processor and all you do is web browsing, maybe you won't notice (most clueless folk).
Netscape Comment: See Mozilla. Netscape steals the code from volunteers and takes a profit, so they are similar browsers. Even Internet Explorer and the partially bloated Opera 8 are better.
Opera 7, Opera 8 Comment: Opera 7.23 is ok. Opera 7.5 and Opera 8 are much too bloated. Opera 6 was fast, but had bugs in a lot of JavaScript sites. But Java sucks too.
DreamWeaver, DreamWeaver MX Comment: Bloaty software, and bloaty code production. Some nice HTML editing at times when you need a quikie, but it also adds bloat to HTML code and hogs up 100 percent CPU. Why is it that RTF editors never add too much bloat to our RTF files? Is it HTML that inherently sucks, along with XML? If people can build parsers for XML and HTML, why can't they build proper WYSIWYG editors?
