Reducing the Windows Vista Footprint

The Windows Vista footprint is quite large, so my current thoughts are “how to reduce the Windows Vista footprint ?”. I hope to come up with a complete overview at some stage, for now i have found the following interesting references:

The reason for looking into this is not that there is an issue with already installed clients, since usually there is enough disk space available, the objective is to get the customized windows vista images smaller or let’s say as small as possible.
