    I'm glad they finally did that. I installed that update without even knowing it was there. It seems to have lopped off 2GB in my case (didn't get a good look), but I think they should have made it automatic as many users will probably never know about it.

    I used to look forlornly at my Space Sniffer image with the winsxs folder slowly taking over the screen like a digital cellulitis, knowing I couldn't do anything without risking some catastrophic failure.

    Wahoo, my C: is no longer red. Needed a restart to see the space freed though.

    I can't download it
    It takes me to the download page, wants me to download WGA to get a code - fine, okay. Download and run "This version of WGA is out of date and can't be used".

    Aghhh.
