Save drive space during Dev Tools install Install
If (like me), you're installing the Developer Tools just to get the compiler and you have no intention of developing Mac software, you can save a large amount of drive space during the installation. Once the installer has launched and you've hit "Continue" a couple of times, you'll see a button for a Custom installation. Click that and then deselect the Developer Documentation. The documentation requires about 270mb of drive space. You can also uncheck the "WebObjects" item (the last one in the list) unless you're developing older WebObjects applications. You could also choose to uncheck the Developer Examples, which consist of source code snippets for use in developing.

I turned off all three during the install, and haven't noticed any issues in using the new 10.1 compiler as of yet. If you do have issues, you can simply re-run the installer and re-enable those pieces you'd like to add back in.

How to remove?

If I would like to remove my 10.0 dev tools, how should I do that? Just delete the folder?
