But did you edit 4k or 8k content back in 90s? 🤔

That shouldn't make for a five minute program load time on an 8GB computer (seriously), a 30GB install size, nor a 2GB RAM idle usage.

I have to agree with this.

I often hear similar comparison with web browsers, basically on the past and now they do one thing, open web pages, but in reality they do way more than that now. Streaming content, development tools, payments, security and more to name.

There's probably a reason why amount of resources on software you listed increases, but probably it has increased more than it was supposed to.
