Windows As was to be expected, the Longhorn Reloaded team has been shut down by Microsoft. "It is with sad news that I have to inform you that today due to a cesit and decist letter we recived from Microsoft we are no longer able to provide you with a download link to Longhorn Reloaded. It deeply saddens me that although Microsoft hknew about this project for many months they only issued us with this notice a few days after we started to distribute the iso via torrents and ftp server."

350Mb out of 200Gb is utterly insignificant (less than 0.2% in fact). Sure, a bit of headroom is always a good idea, but it is always a better (for various reasons)to keep your data and your software on separate drives anyway, in which case you are likely to have several tens of gigabytes free on your system drive (assuming it is a 200GB drive as you stated) - plenty of headroom to play with. If a 10Mb program or Skype is causing your performance to suffer, perhaps you need to invest in a more modern computer (or if your computer is already pretty recent, then something must be seriously wrong with it). I can have multiple applications (including Skype) running at once, each taking up between 15 - 200Mb of RAM with no noticeable drop in performance, and that is on an old and decrepit 2.6GHz PIV with 1GB of RAM.

Your problem is not bloat, it is using a crappy computer.
