Unfortunately it just gets bigger and more bloated with every new release.
As do operating systems, applications, games, tools, pictures, videos, sounds, drivers, and even newer MAME games.
Broadband internet connections increase even faster.
My phone company just offered for my 768/128 kbps A-DSL connection an upgrade option to 1500/384 kbps for a few Euros more... I'm living on the country, not in a (big) city.
This is nice, but can't compete with typical Japanese and Korean internet users who have even higher uploads than my download rate is. Also they're Linux and Java friendly and don't like the Xbox (hark hark)... Will this be the Java market of tomorrow? :-)
