Microsoft releases a lighter version of Windows 11 for less powerful computers

If your current computer is not powerful enough to install Windows 11, there is now a solution. A “lite” version has been released, called Tiny11, and it allows the new operating system to be installed on older devices.

Since its launch, one of the main complaints against Windows 11 has been its high hardware requirements, which makes the operating system incompatible with many computers. And some of them are so subtle that they probably significantly slow down the adoption of the new version, which has so far found its way to less than 20% of computers.

Fortunately, for those who don’t have a powerful enough machine, you now have an alternative to this problem: Tiny11. This is a new version of the operating system that not only significantly reduces the hardware bar to access, but also removes many redundant items.

Tiny11 wants to replace Windows 11 on less powerful hardware

Tiny11, designed by NTDEV, is basically an ISO based on Windows 11 Pro 22H2. As the developer says, it contains “everything you need for a comfortable computing experience, without the pre-installed software and hassle of a standard Windows installation.”

The stripped-down Windows 11 Pro 22H2 only requires 8GB of storage for installation, 2GB of RAM, and, perhaps the best part, no TPM and Secure Boot. As a reminder, TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot were the main causes of criticism for Windows 11 when it was released, especially because so few PCs on the market were compatible. NTDev reveals that the operating system files take up 6.34 GB of space, while the apps that escaped removal take up 1.59 GB.

Finally, as is often the case with these modified versions, one of the main drawbacks is keeping track of updates. You won’t be able to install new versions from Windows Update, so you’ll have to track the release of new features and manually install the ones you want. At the moment, the developer announces that at least one update will be published per month.
