Granted this little tidbit only relates to VB programs but it is
interesting all the same.

Minimum files recommended for installation along with a Visual Basic 5.0

orig. - 2,496,656 bytes       compressed in Zip file - 1,254,195 bytes

GTK+ Library files required for a Win32 application

orig. - 1,941,665 bytes       compressed in Zip file - 715,233 bytes

A GTK+ application needs almost 50% fewer files in size then Visual
Basic does. Alot of developers don't seem to mind delivering a whole
pile of files with Visual Basic applications.  :-)
