A guy over @ PC Advisor's Forum has strip down windows 9X to just 40MB! wow Yes, it's that man again, and yes, it's yet another operating system, but this time I'm really going to blow your mind! Don't believe me? Try these few facts, and I think you'll agree that the name I've given it, Strewth!, is no exaggeration. Total size of the operating system and it's programs, 74.6 mb, and that decimal point IS in the right place. Number of files total, programs and system, 1339. The equivalent 98SE uses 9318. Time to back up the entire system to another partition on the hard drive, 5 seconds. Time to restore the entire system from that backup to it's own partition, 4 seconds. Time to defragment the system's hard drive in normal mode, 4 seconds. Time to do the same defragmentation of the hard drive with the system running in RAM, impossible to judge, but well under 1.5 seconds.
