Why Does Windows Get Slower Over Time?

,----[ Quote ]
| The natural impulse is to blame Windows itself. The phenomenon is so
| well known and widespread that some in the industry have even coined a
| term for it: "Windows rot." The idea is that, for lack of a specific
| cause, Windows just performs worse the longer you use it.
