Question about console programming in C#


I've been writing many small console programs via the command-line C# compiler. My question is: is there any particular reason why I shouldn't use the -nowin32manifest switch when compiling? It makes the .exe smaller, but is there a downside for me? Remember these are just handy little programs I use myself or have written to illustrate some concept. Nothing commercial or anything.

Stoic Joker:
IIRC when you select console application project from the MSVS IDE it adds that switch automatically, so I shouldn't think it would be an issue. There's really not much point in dragging all the GUI stuff around if it's not needed.
