Windows Dave Solomon of Sysinternals was experimenting about how many services are necessary for at least basic funtionality of Windows. What he discovered, however is that Windows can be perfectly used for almost all basic use, such as web browsing or running aplications, without any services running. In his article he explains how to achieve this. Apparently even Microsoft's own vice president of the Core Operating Systems Division was surprised about this.

I havent read the article yet but the only services i "need" to run properly is RPC and dhcp (because im to lazy to set up everything manually ;)

2 services. If you kill RPC a BUNCH of stuff breaks.. I have it off on a tower than I dont need sound and such on.. using blackbox as windowmanager since explorer is more or less dead ;)
