These are extremely lightweight OSes in comparison to Windows. In truth, I am surprised Microsoft couldn’t trim -anything- for these tablets. I’d have to imagine some software on there is rather heavy.

There’s also the fact that some Windows folders like to bloat themselves up over time, and you can do nothing about it (WinSxS is a good example).
