Not scaleable?
Authored by: veloso on Aug 17, '05 04:14:47PM

Stripping x86 code is like stripping languages you don't use (via monolingual).

First, "scaleable" isn't the right word.

Second, the chances that you -aren't- going to reinstall everything when you get that brand-spanking-new osx86 box are low to nonexistent.

Third, why not? 30% may not seem much, but when you've got a 40 or 80 gig drive every little bit helps. Heck, running monolingual removed tens of megabytes of useless junk (uh, language support) from my system.
