Adobe Reader X(Xxl)

There’s “bloat”, and then there’s BLOAT.

“Bloat” is spending 5% of your CPU cycles and RAM to have a nice-looking user interface. “Bloat” is having the nerve to¬†create a desktop environment that might not run well on a computer that’s 15 years old.

BLOAT is a PDF reader that is a 70 MB download, and (according to the installer) takes up 418 MB of space in total once extracted.

If Adobe software were people, they’d be dead from DIABEETUS.
