You probably heard that there’s a Windows 10 version on a diet and latest reports say that the slimmed down OS is currently on the loose. Windows 10 Lean is the minimum viable version of Windows 10 and it obviously runs on low specs devices. Now, it’s finally available to the general public. Compared to the Windows 10 Pro, the installer is 2GB smaller and it occupies half of what Windows 10 would normally do after installation.

Windows 10 Lean is a legacy-free version of the OS

In this OS version, 175 MB is destined for apps and games and drivers, programs and wallpapers are missing from this small version of Windows 10. If you compare the OS with Windows 10 Pro, over 55,500 files are missing. Another feature of Windows Lean is the low resource usage. The 64-bit OS is using 1.5GB RAM and it’s great for a virtual machine. It’s safe to say that Windows 10 Lean is basically a legacy-free version of Windows 10. For instance, the Control Panel is empty instead of being flooded with items. You can still install Win32 apps on it, unlike Windows RT which doesn’t allow it.

Windows 10 Lean targets tablets with 16GB storage

The smaller operating system reportedly targets tablets with 16GB of storage space and the OS would also make a perfect base for an operating system which is based on C-Shell. But the cut down version of Windows 10 would have to offer a desktop.

Windows 10 Lean is still filled with bugs but if you’re interested in trying it, you can head over to WindowsBlogItalia which is currently hosting the ISOs for the 64-bit and 32-bit version of the OS and download the smaller version of Windows 10 aka Windows 10 Lean.
