Smaller Vista Installation

by Lee

A software has been released to cut down Windows Vista’s installation size. The software is called vLite which removes Windows Media Player, Windows Mail, and other utilities before installing the operating system.

“This tool doesn’t use any kind of hacking, all files and registry entries are protected as they would be if you install the unedited version, only with the changes you select,” said the developer, Dino Nuhagic.

“A lot of people think of Windows as this large, bloated operating system, and that’s maybe a fair characterization, I have to admit.” said Eric Traut who is a Microsoft engineer.

Nuagic does not have an exact figure of how many people downloaded his program.

    Interesting idea for software, I wonder how many people will actually use it. It seems more like a convenience then a necessity.

    I may have to try that if I can’t get my laptop’s version of Vista to work well. It’s driving me nuts. I use to think it was because I was a die hard XP user, but not anymore. It’s Vista!
