[QUOTE="Steven Fisher"]\nCode to remove code you don't need: 10MB at most. Should be a lot less,\nbut let's pick the worst possible value. Space saved: 300MB. Seems like\na good trade.\n\n\nMy experience disagrees. Every release of Mac OS X since the time I\nbought my last PowerBook G4 to the day I gave it to my dad improved its\nperformance and increased its capabilities, and the only hardware\nupgrades I ever performed on it in that period were hard drive swaps\nwhen one died. Sure, I didn't have access to all of the capabilities\navailable to newer machines, but I still had everything I had before\nplus some.\n\n\nIf you never want better performance or new features, that's the right\nway to do it. But if you hold the features you use constant, every\nrelease of Mac OS X has improved performance.\n\n\nDo you have a source for 5%? I expect it's more like 1%. That's probably\nless than the percentage of people who have a cold at any particular\ntime.\n\n\nIf that's true, you should be cheering Snow Leopard rather than passing\non it. It isn't about "no new features," it's just *focused* on making\nthings lean, mean and smoothly working.\nSteve[/QUOTE]\n\nWell, let's hope SL is all about improving the system. But what about\nthis:\n[URL]http://tinyurl.com/alh336[/URL]\nThey are adding MBs.\nSo how can they improve performance and decrease the size without\nremoving some useful stuff?
