The stripped-down version even left the Microsoft Store.
The developer NTDev has released tiny11, a stripped-down version of the Windows 11 operating system. It differs from the original OS by greatly reduced system requirements.
If Windows 11 needs 4 gigabytes of RAM and at least 20 gigabytes of disk space, then tiny11 will need 2 gigabytes of memory and 8 gigabytes of disk space. It was possible to reduce the exactingness of the OS due to the rejection of a variety of libraries and applications.
The developer calls the delivery of tiny11 the minimum necessary: there is a Microsoft store, Paint, Notepad and other basic applications. But .Net drivers and libraries, for example, will have to be installed separately.
In addition, the Windows Component Store has been cut from tiny11. This means that it is not possible to add support for new languages or enable additional operating system features.
Finally, tiny11 removes some of the limitations of Windows 11. You can install a stripped-down version of the OS without a TPM-enabled processor; by default, tiny11 uses a local account that is not tied to a Microsoft server.
