Working set is definitely something we want to improve post 1.0.  We know some of the areas where we are using a lot of memory (for example we load every type in System.dll and mscorlib) and we'll be working to improve this over time.  Unfortunately though it's not just a RC thing L.

(and personally I use notepad2 for most of my Python editing).

MSI could be nice for some, but I won't probably ever bother with it. Just let me know which envionmental var has to be set up and I will be happy.

On more serious note, on my machine memory foot print on cpython is 3mb, but IPY takes up whopping 17mb+.
Is this release candidate thing or is this something that we have to live with? I know that Jim did mention this as an issue before, but certainly seem bloated.

BTW: What is everyone using for IDE, editor, or debugger? Pls, e-mail me directly with subject: "my IPY editor" yelled at yahoo.com<mailto:yelled at yahoo.com>. I would not like to clogg this space up. I would like to take a small sample.
Thanks much!

I've opened a bug for us to track this - (#2705, http://www.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?ProjectName=IronPython&WorkItemId=2705)  if anyone else has any suggestions as for what the MSI should do please either comment here or add a comment to the bug.

It's too much work to get this ready for 1.0, but we'll look at distributing an MSI shortly after 1.0 (either 1.01 or 1.1 hopefully).
