Windows 11 is known for its very high hardware requirements that make it difficult to use the operating system on less powerful computers or devices with older but still capable hardware.
There are many ways to get around the limitations, but you can't deal with Windows 11's large footprint and too many unnecessary components. Therefore, installing Windows 11 on unsupported hardware may result in a less than satisfactory experience. This is where Tiny11 comes to play.
Tiny11 is the initial 22H2 build of Windows 11, containing only the essentials. The OS only requires 8GB on a drive (Windows 11 needs more than 20GB), runs on systems with 2GB of RAM, and doesn't need a Trusted Platform Module or Secure Boot. You can even upgrade from Windows 10 to Tiny11.
It's finally here!— NTDEV @firstname.lastname@example.org (@NTDEV_) -
Based off of Windows 11 Pro 22H2, tiny11 has everything you need for a comfortable computing experience without the bloat and clutter of a standard Windows installation.
Tiny11 provides only the essentials such as accessibility tools, Windows Terminal, Microsoft Store, Calculator, Notepad and Paint. There is no Microsoft Edge, so you can install whatever browser you want without the OS begging you to stay in Edge. Tiny11 works with offline accounts by default, but you can sign in with your Microsoft account.
Overall, the operating system has everything that a simple user needs. It consumes less resources and does not require new hardware. Of course, installing a modified Windows 11 ISO always has potential risks, so proceed with caution. Another thing to keep in mind is that you need a valid key to activate Tiny11. You can download Tiny11 from the Internet Archive.
If Windows 11 isn't for you, opt for Tiny10.
