    Startup Sound - Change in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    ahaha, 19 mb in win7 & 66 mb in win8 for a stupid dll, I wonder what they're drinking or smoking .. .
    in the 80's & beginning of the 90's, we had 20mb hard drives ... .

    soon, Asians will need to conceive a mini freezer for laptops

    seriously folks, why would Microsoft conceive a 66 mb dll with image resources & co when they could
    automatically update it to 166mb, let's wait win9 or 10 & we'll finally have the expected vm friendly
    improvement lol
