Removing unwanted parts of MacOSX?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi all

I remember reading something about removing unwanted laguage files, unwanted fonts, unwanted help files etc. and gaining a lot of disk space. I am trying to search for it but have been unsuccessful so far.

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks and cheers

    This is what I use to remove the unwanted language resources

    Monoligal 1.3.2

    I hope this helps

    Nope, I did not Thanks for the warning though!

    This actually seems to be a newer version because the last time I downloaded this (before Apple went Intel), this entire tab re. PowerPC architecture was not even there in the software!

    It has been out only I think around 2 months or maybe slightly longer.

    I meant to add the part about not removing the PPPC part as I did the same by mistake and paid the re-install price.
