    Well here I am using the 3 systems and after several tests and benchmarks there is no doubt Windows 8.1 is far superior although its UI be say not very beautiful although the AeroGlass helps greatly to improve it this way every time I start the machine I have the options par at the moment and updating as needed only my 2 cents...

    Less visual effects the better for me though ive got a 3rd party 7 theme that has w10 thin borders and a dark wallpaper. Classic is awful but i can shutdown dwm service for maximum gee gees :)

    With the savings i got on the 7 grab a few posts back i can afford to have aero glass running while keeping handles threads and processes at very acceptable levels.

    After a lot of testing the theme I liked the most in 8.1 was the Windows 8 Release Preview Theme (RP Theme) and it was designed to be used with the aero effect so I use AeroGlass. And RP theme has some bugs in 8.1 but AeroGlass comes with a very similar theme and these bugs fixed. Over time you get used to the UI although I prefer a classic start menu.

    I removed with NTLite may be that with MSMG Toolkit you can remove without problems because for 8.1 is still used DISM and the method of removing packages.

    2 Things I would like to see in Toolkit:

    - Support for older versions of Windows (7 and 8.1) with the manual removing method.
    - The option to remove Windows Update and the extra files that are kept in WinSxS for Windows Update compatibility. This greatly reduces the image size.

    7 pro has something approaching 1gb of drivers, removing 3rd party drivers alone gives a good saving without touching os components. ripping out winsxs and hard links will save a fair bit. Nuhi gives you more options and i prefer his way. :)
    I may have to test that igpu driver on 8.1 but ive got a big list and need tocatch up on a lot :(

    That's not an error related to components removed, it's a warning of duplicate ownership of files which I do see normally in my test where there are no errors shown by SFC.
