Lite with modern skin support!

Is it possible? Create a Lite+ or another name and add modern skin support to it?

There are many things that I don't use in full version, like video support, media library, etc.

In fact, I use only the things that Lite have, but can't leave the full version because of the modern skin support. I really don't want to go back to oldstyle.

Lite would be perfect for me if in the comparison table, the "Full Support for Modern Skins" line was ticked. Omly this, nothing more!

Download "Full", change the setup type to "Lite" c/o the drop-down menu in the installer options, then checkmark "Modern Skin Support".

It could be that he's on dialup and doesn't want to download all of it.

I did this, but the load time stills slower than the "real lite". Lite loads instantaneously, while full (with lite + MoSS) takes 2 or 3 seconds in the first load. Is this difference caused only by the modern skin load?

I had in mind that the core programs (winamp.exe, etc) of each version were different.

if you're on a older/slower spec machine then modern skins will take longer to load up everytime. modern skin support is provided as a plugin which effectively overrides and adapts the original windows to do what's needed. due to the extra features modern skins can do they are more processor intensive.
