Windows 10 is now more than 7 years old. And, although it was criticized from the beginning, it was finally managed to be a worthy successor to Windows 7, an operating system loved by all. Now all the past versions of the operating system can no longer be supported, if we want to use Windows on our computer, we need to go through Windows 10, one way or another. The problem is if our PC is already a few years old. here we have certainly noticed that it is slower. Fortunately, there is an alternative system that allows us to give our second PC and do the flying: Tiny10.
We’re not very fans of Windows Replacement. Developers, with uncertain intentions, a proprietary operating system, protected by copyrights, and modify it, thinking that they know more than Microsoft’s own mechanics, to create a system that is lighter, faster, more stable and more secure than our system. are given Offered directly to Microsoft. However, we looked at Tiny10 in detail, which convinced us, and this is that, like other modified systems, it is not activated by default, so when we install it, we do not run into piracy.
That brings us to Tiny10
Miny10, and its successor Tiny11 are modified versions of the operating system, in which the creators removed all the heavy and unnecessary parts of the system to reduce the size they occupy, disable all unnecessary processes and thus make the system work. More fluid on all types of computers, especially with slow processing or low ram.
In this way, this system occupies a little more than 5 GB of space on the hard disk, and it can work, in its 32-bit version, with only 1 GB of RAM. If you want to install the 64-bit version, they recommend 2 GB of RAM, but even so, much less than what Windows 10 needs from the factory.
This system excludes all the applications that come standard with Windows, such as the image viewer, multimedia player, browser, etc., and leaves only the essentials: notepad and WordPad. We also do not have the Microsoft Store or other Microsoft services, in the purest style of the previous system. What it includes in its latest versions is Windows Defender, as an essential and fundamental antivirus to protect us.
The latest version of this system, now, dates from March 2023 and is based on Windows 10 LTSC 2021 extended support version. Its installation is simple and easy. And we can move it both with Windows 7 or Windows 8 keys, and with the original Windows 10 license.
Obviously we’re dealing with a proprietary version of Windows 10, so we won’t be able to download it from Microsoft’s servers. But its developers upload it directly to the Internet Archive, so that we can download it completely by entering this connection without loading our computer.
We recommend installing the original Windows much better, without modifications, since it will give us fewer problems. But if we have a very old computer that we want to give life to again, this little 10 is the least of the evils.
