You didn’t think I’d forget to mention our Beyond TV 3.5 review did you?
I’ve use the prior incarnation of XPlite (98lite) and loved it. It’s a great tool (along with blackviper XP service tweak guide) for minimizing the bulk of unneeded gunk & bloatware in XP. Although too much pruning can be detrimental to system stability, a lean and mean install can be much more stable and get more mileage out of meager PCs. YMMV =)
