reducing the size of MacOS X

Hi,

I wanted to install Windows on a MacBook Air using bootcamp. The problem is that it only has a 64 GB SSD disk and my MacOS X installation takes up 21 GB. Is that normal? Is there any way to reduce the size of the original install without erasing it?

Kind Regards,

Most common is to remove extra printers and language files. It should get you some extra space.
