    I don't know which is better, but removing languages should be fine... Though I wouldn't if I were you. One of the best parts of mac os is its internationalization...

    Whenever I download a new application, I use Xslimmer. And whenever I download an OS update, or security update, I use Monolingual, as Xslimmer only works on applications.

    I never use the "remove architecture" feature of Monolingual, however; only the languages.

    I used Monolingual and removed over 3.3 GB of languages! It worked fast and easy. I now have 202 GB left. Better, but I want a little more. Is there a application or way to remove unused printer drivers? Also, are there any other things I can remove to save disk space? Thanks.

    Just do this "manually".

    Go to "Library/Printers" (the "Library" that exists at the very top level of your boot drive), and take out those that you don't need.
