I guess the thing to see is the size of the base libraries.
Yepper, that was my question.
@mouser - Understood, but I'm a bit hung-up on the absurd notion that a small utility should actually be
small. Most of my C++ stuff is under 100KB, Page Countster for example for all it does is only 282KB, Got Space is 158KB...and most of that is the icon. Now if I go with C#/.NET I can get a binary that is 6-10KB, but that is going to be dependent on a runtime that may be as high as 40MB ... Which means that my supposed to be tiny little utility is now a 40MB behemoth that can't be used in a clean in-and-out zero presence fashion. That for me is a deal breaker.
