    Does anyone know where i can get a copy of XP, that is completely strip down to the bones, like all the un-needed services etc.... turned off.

    I need it to run adobe programs and the internet and thats it.

    thanks

    as said above...

    nlite for XP
    vlite for Vista

    ...providing that you what you're doing and you'll have to remove everything yourself using the above apps, burn the customised build on to a disc, and then install on to your machine.

    actually i'm now using ubuntu. liking the knew hardy, its vastly improved from ubuntu of to years ago. i can now actually work in it as i do in vista. so we'll see if i keep with ubuntu or change os's.
