Yeeeah, 2.6 GB isn't gonna cut it. I recently bought a combination Printer/Scanner. The "Full Installation" software was 1 GB. ONE GIGABYTE. For a fucking printer. Granted, some of that was crappy photo software and whatnot, but why should I care about any of that? I just have Photoshop, which is still far smaller.

But even the "Light Installation" was 100 MB, which is still ridiculous beyond all reason for a printer, or a scanner, or both (it also has a built-in flash card reader but that still isn't anywhere near justification). What's with this Windows stuff?

Well, you know, they all have to have pretty graphics, and wizards, and stuff.
