Isn't the block chain size growth hard coded to be linear?

10 mins per block, 1MB block size... scarily this is 52GB per year.

However, it is linear not exponential.

A 2TB drive, that's 40 years of block chain, so it's actually not that bad.

The block size ceiling is supposed to be a temporary measure and to be lifted before it becomes a limiting factor on bitcoin's usability.

It exists precisely to prevent the early bloat before Bitcoin can scale to or justify that this thread is concerned with.
