This is incredible - I normally run either a vlited Vista or Server 2008 install of x64. The install disk is usually around 1500-1700 mb, and by the time I install all of my third party software, about ten gigs of hard drive is occupied. I tried to vlite Windows 7, but she was having none of it. Even configurations that worked with prior W7 betas no longer worked. Anyhoo, After the full install of 7077 x64, and all of my usual software, the hard drive footprint is within 500-1000 megs of my usual vlite install. That's progress....usually another 5-7 gigs would have been occupied by the full install of W7.
