Yes, the 8,000+ added recipes would be an unnecessary waste of space on my hardrive. If I knew they were just part of a bonus disk that I dont have to install, I would perhaps purchase it since the price isnt bad. There is one on eBay right now however, that is under $5.00 with free shipping. I'm sure if I change my mind, I might be able to find one really cheap again.
I think I will just wait for more ideas on this thread.
