This build was inspired by other lite builds I have used over the years, but recently I found a lite build that was very close to what I want out of my Windows experience, save a few changes and tweaks I would've liked implemented, so I decided to build my own Lite Windows.
*Net Framework 3.5 not pre-installed, and not install-able
*Not designed to work for VM installation
USED MAINLY FOR:
Light gaming and retro gaming (emulation), Audio, video and photo recording, editing, and encoding, Web Surfing, Word Processing, Media Playback (music, movies, anime, etc.) I use MPC-HC for all this
I mainly use handbrake and ffmpeg for video encoding, and the most demanding games I play aren't very, ie. cuphead, age of empires 2, towerfall, streets of rage 4, Ys origin, Ys felghana, Zwei 2, Ys VIII, Rayman Origins and Legends, Dolphin emulator for Wii, PS2, SNES, N64 etc.
Full bluetooth controller support for the XBOX one and the New XBOX wireless controllers, which only became available in the October 2020 update to the newer versions of windows (ver 1903 and up)
Full NET framework 4.8 support, but not 3.5, I use a SCP driver to remap my xiaomi bluetooth gamepads that needs full NET 4.8 framework support.
Directplay Windows feature enabled for original Age of Empires 2 game support.
Microsoft store works, and the intel graphics command center works, was a pain to eventually get working properly.
Metered connection is working if you wish to use it, so windows won't try to download drivers without your consent.
Explorer Quick Access is functional if you choose to show recently used files or folders for rapid access.
This build is meant to be similar to a stock windows 10 experience in look and feel, no custom themes, icons, cursors, sounds, etc.
This version is English language only, and the winSXS folder is cleared so updates are not supported. If people like this SuperLite version, I will upload updated future builds anyways.
** Windows update service is disabled by default, so if you want to download an app from the windows store, just change it to manual in the services tab under windows administrative tools, and apply.
This build is desgined for laptop use, so has mobility center, wifi support, bluetooth support etc.
**SPECIAL NOTE** - All network card drivers have been removed, you'll need to provide your own. Make sure you have them downloaded and on hand, if needed, before installing this version of Windows.
I am using this exact Windows build on my laptop, and it runs fantastic so far, stable, light, and snappy.
This is my first share with TeamOS! I hope this build helps others love their Windows 10 experience as much as I have so far!
