Who said it's for majority ? I was just dreaming about what I would like (+ saving hundred bucks thrown away on all those extras). There are programs to cut down installation and make it liter but with plenty of space on disks it's just not worth it. Can also get rid of most inbuilt APPs and programs but replacing them is easier.
Yes, I remember DOS and contortions we had to go thru to get some stuff working but used it only when I had to otherwise used Atari ST that was quite capable at that time with better and easier OS. Had to use Autocad at work on a 286 PC but used another one at home that made files compatible with AC. Heck of easier and faster.
