Some users seems to report that the app was crashing... well, they were lucky! On my system, it ran just fine... except it totally screwed up my installation! I should have stick to monolingual :( Anyway, I asked him to remove the unused languages (all except russian, french, and of course english (we can't remove it anyway)), and clean the architectures. There were nothing to setup the last point, but anyway, it's either PPC you remove or Intel, right?! Well, except this fool removed the wrong part of the code! I run it on a macbook air and it removed the Intel Code, leaving only the PPC code... So, a chance Apple created Rosetta to make PPC code readable by Intel machines, but it's slow and take huge quantity of RAM... Moreover, XsTrimmer also broke the hard drive structure... To summerize: AVOID THIS SOFTWARE! Go with Monolingual. It's pretty straight forward and works well. And YOU choose what code to remove (it remind you what plateform you are running - and doesn't make mistake: "Intel 64").

Seemed to be working slowly but well, that is, until it crashed -- on my MacBookPro. I will stick with xSlimmer thanx.

Well, I finally gave it a try the other day and it didn't hose my system, BUT!, it crashed several times. The scanning went just fine, however it crashed each time I used it during the trimming process. Notified the developer about it. Haven't gotten a response, yet.

Can't say I'm real impressed so far. I've tried to use this twice and each time it's locked up and crashed on me. This is during the initial scan phase on my Applications folder. I've created a few category folders for audio apps and graphics stuff, which any app like this should be able to navigate. It scans about a dozen application, then goes all beachball on me, crashing a few minutes later. Definitely not ready for prime time.

Something like this can really hose one's system if wasn't put together perfectly. I'd really like to use XsTrimmer but I'm just not ballsy enough to jump in, since the developer has no apparent track record and there are no reviews by people who have actually used it. In other words, "you first!" Anybody?

So is this another free version of an existing piece of commercial software? In this case, Xslimmer? Ironically, aren't you also then competing with the free and open source Monolingual?
