Monolingual(英)


Mac OS 最讓人喜愛的一個特點就是它的多國語系支援,只要你高興,隨時都可以把介面切換成另一個國定的語系(而且不用$),但,我們真的會使用這麼多語系嗎?像 Simon 平時了不起是繁體中文與英文介面切換(英文還很少用,因為 MacOX 許多應用程式的中文化並不高),其他的數十國語言,對我來說,就成了無用的廢物,更重要的是,它還佔了我已經不太大的硬碟空間。

Monolingual 就是套幫忙刪除 MAC OS X 中不會用到的語系資料程式,簡單地說,它可以幫你的 Mac OS X 減肥。我引用原作者對它的介紹如下:

Monolingual is a program for removing unnecessary language resources from Mac OS X, in order to reclaim several hundred megabytes of disk space. It requires at least Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Panther) and also works on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

I don't know about you, but I use my computer in only one (human) language — English. And I'm willing to bet that you do too, albeit perhaps not English. So why do you have a bunch of localization files for the Mac OS X operating system filling up your hard drive? Enter Monolingual — a handy utility for reclaiming your space for more useful things… like international mp3 files, email or whatever you like.
