AN ENTERPRISING SOUL claims to have taken the bloatware out of the Windows 9X operating system and reduced it from the huge size it was to a mere 40MB.And that means his PC boots "in seconds", needs no security updates and flies along like the proverbial off the hot shovel.
The chap even posts free CDs and instructions to people who want to try out his SPEEDOS or STREWTH! operating system.
The 67 year old man and his accomplishments has written all about it on the PC Advisor forums.
You'll have to register at PC Advisor but after that, you'll be able to read all about it, here, and the 500 posts that follow the breakthrough he claims.
He says: "Number of files total, programs and system, 1339. The equivalent 98SE uses 9318."
And adds to his claim: "To balance all that criticism of the company, this is a 100% Microsoft system, born out of the 98SE core, illustrating once again just what superb operating systems they are at heart. Eat your heart out Linux companies, you can NEVER achieve this."
But a reader points out this is kind of bloatware itself, and points to this Windows-on-a-floppy project that gets 3.11 down to between 5MB and 10MB. As Eva would no doubt ejaculate: "Sheesh!" µ

I can totally believe that. All versions of windows are full of useless bloatware crap that we don't need. I dual boot with Linux but Linux is pretty useless with games compatability unfortunately. Anyway if it's not a scam then I definately want one :)
