Default Windows XP Lite...something MS should have done

I was browsing around and I landed on this modified copy of Windows XP Pro...well, it appears to be a Xtreme light version of what WinXP was originaally. All useless services are disabled, there is no annoying programd, no themes...or so I think..., no screensavers. The installation is a littlew different compared to the original install.... it looks like the Win2k installation...The space required is ~200-300MB...compared to ~995-1045MB

Obly the daily usage stuff are used...such as gaming, audio, networking and such.

MS should have done that with the services

I still use screensavers. I like the 3d Windows XP, but everytime it runs, my CPU temp goes up to like 42 degrees. Yikes, what a process!!!!!

Anyways, Windows Vista will have a lite version-I think.
