Last month, @NTDEV_, creator of the popular tiny10/11 Windows mod, released tiny10 version 23H2, a modernized Windows 10 image with unnecessary components removed. Those who left Windows 10 behind and switched to Windows 11 can also taste a lightweight operating system as tiny11 23H2 is now available for download.
Like its Windows 10-based counterpart, tiny11 23H2 is a modified Windows 11 ISO rebuilt using the open source tool OSDBuilder with a few additional changes. The latter ensures that the project is compatible with most Windows components, applications and updates. As a result, you get a modern and reliable operating system that takes up significantly less disk space than “vanilla” Windows 11.
Another big change in tiny11 23H2 is support for the Xbox Identity Provider, which means tiny11 users can finally play games downloaded from the Microsoft Store and use Xbox-related services.
You can see the tiny11 23H2 in action in a YouTube video posted by the developer:
It’s worth noting that even though it’s nicknamed 23H2, the latest tiny11 is still based on Windows 11 22H2 because version 23H2 isn’t out yet. Again, like tiny10, “23H2” only indicates a release from the second half of 2023 (there is no such thing as Windows 10 23H2).
There are two other things you should consider before downloading tiny11. First, it’s not activated. @NTDEV_ aims to provide users with a lightweight Windows modification, not a way to pirate Microsoft’s operating system. Second, consider potential privacy implications when downloading modified Windows ISOs and ensure you trust the developer before using tiny11 for your daily computing tasks. Alternatively, you can create your own tiny 11 using The OSDBuilder script.
You can download tiny11 version 23H2 From the Internet Archive. The ISO is x64-only for now (Windows 11 is not available in a “32-bit flavor”), but the developer says an ARM64 version will be available soon.
