Really, Microsoft? It takes 200.2 MB of code to convert an XML file? Really?
I think you're being unfair to poor ol' Microsoft. I'm sure there's a lot more value-added here than just the ability to convert some files! Let's do some math:4MB of icons and scripts to update all of your files so that they will now open with "Open XML File Format Converter for Mac 1.1.3".20MB of code to run in the background all the time so you can launch "Open XML File Format Converter for Mac" without a 0.2 second delay.83MB for "Microsoft Internet Explorer for Mac", which "Open XML File Format Converter for Mac" quite reasonably relies on.41MB of generic Microsoft library code which many other applications will probably use someday, eventually actually *saving* you space.3MB of documentation and help files.6MB for the "Upgrade to Open XML File Format Converter Business Edition" wizard.6MB for the "Upgrade to Open XML File Format Converter Ultimate Edition" wizard.7MB for the crash reporter wizard.18MB of various other wizards.12MB for "Bracky", your XML converting buddy and mine..2MB to convert the XML fileThat's 200.2MB of utility, if I've ever seen it. Link please!
