Close i have an ssd. And you have 16gb of ram and cortana is the one that is gonna push you over the line? Then me with 4 i should be driving my swap file crazy. Weird that it doesn't though. And notepad's function is in the name. It's to take notes. Someone calls you and you need to write down a number? Open notepad. For me having anything more would be bloat (weird how that works right?) There's a billion users and everyone has different tastes. As you can't make a version for each one you try to make one that appeals to most. I agree that people should more easily be able to add/remove features (as it already exists to a degree) but people should also understand that microsoft won't code an os based on what "johnny42" thinks is necessary to have.
