Once my Mini arrives I plan on wiping ubuntu from it and installing an nlited XP with SP3 slipstreamed. I figure this way I can get rid of the languages, other keyboards and useless windows apps (I use Notepad++, Paint.net, Media Player Classic, Powertoy Calc etc. so no need for WMP, Notepad, Calculator, Windows Messenger etc). I might also remove most of the drivers but I'm going to be very careful with this because of the strange driver dependencies in XP that a previous poster mentioned. To be honest if I remove too much I have no problems just starting from scratch and reburning a new nlite image. While this may not speed up the computer it will certainly save a lot of space and make the whole windows install/configuration step a lot simpler. I'll let you know how it goes!
