    I used Monolingual on Leopard and Snow Leopard but am hesitant to use it on Lion because it is a developer build. Has anyone used this to get rid of language packs, etc with positive results?

    I never really embraced using monolingual, the savings from removing the language packs never really gave me enough space to offset the risk of impacting the stability of the system. I mean hard drive prices are so low now a days it makes little sense to worry about a gigabyte or two of savings.

    Now that hard drive prices are so cheap, they've moved us onto the more expensive (but admittedly better) SSD's, so I wouldn't be so sure ;)

    Seems to work fine for me.
    YMMV....
