A compact install of win95 is 27 Mb, is 30Mb so unbelievable? No doubt it will grow considerably when various things are added to it as it gets more complete.

I could only get Win98SE to be a minimum of 200 or so MB when installed; how were you able to get win95 so small. o_O

don't use retarded things like useless graphics or sh** like that

make a normal version (with all useless or not stuff) and other "lite" version using essential stuff

o make an special instalator or something -_-

Most ReactOS .exe files contain text in a lot of languages.
3 Years ago I shrinked ReactOS further by removing unused language strings via Resource Hacker
and rerendered icons in 16 colours with an graphics tool.
