    Doesn't surprise me. It's just usual Microsoft bloat. I would think that 5 gigs of hard drive space for a bloated Vista complier, is pretty balanced...

    Just keep in mind that some versions of Vista requires 128 gigs of hard drive space, just for the Windows OS. Now that is what I call M$ bloat...
