    I have Monolingual, and was wondering if I should delete PPC and ARM architecture? Any reason to keep it on my Core 2 Duo iMac?

    If you strip the PPC stuff from the System Frameworks, you have to make sure you have nothing that uses Rosetta (including printer drivers and scanner drivers etc). Otherwise they won't work anymore.

    You can strip ARM stuff, that's just for the iPhone and you probably don't have any anyway.

    Not unless you're planning to copy applications directly to a PowerPC computer.

    I have an iPod Touch, do I need to keep the ARM stuff? How big is it all? Is it actually worth removing?
