I'm getting rid of absolutely everything that my laptop doesn't need in order to get that extra bit more memory freed up but I've found so much crap that seems to serve no purpose on my system as they are related to things that I don't have and never use.
I'm very minimalist, so I'm looking to get rid of everything that isn't required by iTunes 7 and anything that has anything to do with any model of iPod other than my last-gen iPod Nano. I do not connect to the internet with it and never update anything unless I have to, in which case I manually download it using my desktop.
So, knowing all that, If I uninstalled the following programs could I lose any of the limited functionality I already employ?:
Apple Mobile Device Support - This is for the iPhone right?
Apple Software Update - If uninstalling this will prevent me from downloading updates automatically, I don't care.
Anything related to Bonjour - I see no need to have a program running just so my iPod can turn on iTunes when connected.
I know I can run a application that will wipe out ALL Apple related programs but won't that also get rid of iTunes?
