      I have queried for the Win32_Product on a machine before and after installing Visual Studio 2013. The installer installs over 130 software packages! Many of these packages are entirely unnecessary for my day-to-day job or even my side projects. Some of these packages seem like typical shovelware, especially those related to Microsoft Advertising platforms, Windows Azure, or Windows Phone development. Trying to uninstall a package will typically lead to a very unstable IDE, otherwise I could probably uninstall over 100 packages.

        Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has increased color and contrast use within the user interface while continuing to focus on giving the content you are creating and editing visual prominence. We’ve utilized the feedback you gave us to help refine our approach to color and contrast within three main areas: 1) we added color to icons and reduced line weights to improve icon scan-ability and to better communicate icon meaning and categorization; 2) we added line work and raised contrast levels to increase visual separation between screen regions; 3) we included a built-in “Blue” theme option at product first launch to better support user choice.

        In keeping with these three areas we have made many changes to the Visual Studio 2013 built-in themes. In high utilization and icon intensive areas of the product, such as common toolbar actions and…
