While certainly true, this thread is about a memory leak, not bloatware.Unix-like systems are much less likely to use a lot of RAM because there is simply much less bloatware running in the background. I think this explains why so many windows11 users complain that more than 4GB of RAM, and sometimes more than 5GB of RAM is used at idle.
Shrek identified a problem where an integrated applet (regardless if considered bloatware or not) was/is continually eating up more and more RAM instead of releasing no longer in-use memory back in the pool. That's a bug that need correcting.
So as R-T-B aptly noted,
Can we keep on the subject issue? This isn't a generic "all MS issues" thread.
