    We all have seen that SL was supposedly cut 6GB from its previous install size but that is all depending on what install you started out with (+/- printer driver,s languages, etc.). Can anyone who has installed the most recent developer build comment as to the exact size of a clean install. This would be very pertinent to making a 32GB SSD a reasonable option.

    6.x GB with all languages (around 300MB) and all printer drivers (less than 1GB) selected during the install.

    You can customize the installation quite a bit. I cut out all the language translations and that alone brought the install down to just 4.3 GB.

    wow, that's great news. thanks for the information! that 32gb x25-e is looking pretty doable right now.
