it was interesing article and comments...


but you forgot one thing - it is technology...
on the other hand there is marketing...


I have wrote 3 programs (one project with MFC). all they together fit on HD less then 10 MB . Instalation - as copying files and configuring something - takes several seconds. So I desided it is wrong way.


Find out some BMP, put them in dll, made some useless catalogs, files... Then found MS tool for making instalation. The process of instalation become 3-5 min.


The clients look at the program, enjoy it (there was functions, witch he needs) and ask me: how much does it fit on HD?


I said:
-50 MB.
-oh, it is very small program...


also, i have talked with some sale managers. They do not know about software. They know one thing: if soft do not take 200MB - it is not software.



...
Microsoft help for us, and it do marketing also.


Who needs fast, good programed softeware?
It meens: you can work with PII 64MB...
is it computer?
(and even no needs for new, better, faster,etc!!...)
