Tiny VPC images

I’ve recently been building quite a few VPC images for betas, testing, sandboxing etc and have made use of the techniques that Jeff Atwood posted about and I linked to in a previous post. It’s staggering how small you can make them, and how much faster they load. Jeff’s article is essential reading if you are making use or intending to make use of VPC’s. I managed to get a full Windows XP Sevice Pack 2 image down to 584MB !
