  1. been reading that the bootleg tinyxp creates a small, fast
    xp installation - same can be created legally with nlite and
    want to know if anyone is using such an installion
    what are the + / - benefits ?
    does it improve the performance of other programs ?
    does it improve the performance of a realtime charting/order entry program ?
  2. I am using tinyXP version 9 with the bare install and it works well. My P4 with tinyXP renders web content faster than my Core 2 Extreme rig on bloated XP. I'll admit I don't fully trust that there isn't some keylogger buried in the OS. I use it for IB TWS with a dongle, but I wouldn't feel comfortable logging into banking.

    I am going to use nlite this weekend, but it's a pre-install app.
