Anti-aliased fonts, for starters..
OS/2 already had scalable fonts (Adobe's font manager), not sure how much antialiasing would add to that. It is true my old machine had a 8-bit-colour display and the resolution was 800x600, if I recall correctly. Compared to it, my current 24-bit, 1280x1024 pixel display needs about 10 times more memory for the display. Possibly many off-screen copies of images like icons etc. have with a similar ratio. But I don't think that alone would justify all of the increased RAM requirement.
