IOW, this guy was able to remove a significant number of "features"
from the Vista installer...probably violating the Vista EULA in the
process.  His own hacked version of Vista supposedly ran faster than
Linux and XP.

How many average users are going to take the time to remaster Vista?
How many would even know that such a thing is possible, not to mention
legal?  It almost seems more practical to experiment with another
Linux distribution than to try to hack Vista to run on a netbook...
