eXPerience Proudly Presents... "TinyXP" Windows XP Pro SP2 Unattended (UK Version) Thank you for installing this stripped out (103Mb) Edition of XP. I clocked mine in Task Manager using only 39.5Mb of RAM. Windows XP usually uses 300Mb of RAM at the very least. This "TinyXP" takes up only 400Mb total space on your system hard drive. Check out the JPEG image "TinyXP.jpg" on this CD to see what functionality is left remaining in Windows. By using only 40Mb of RAM, this allows your PC to run fast, I mean VERY fast! All important hardware drivers and other essentials have been kept in this release - no more problems with those stupid Alcatel stingray modems! You have joystick support, printer support and other bare essentials. "Microsoft SideWinder" joystick support has been left in. NOTE: You cannot use Microsoft Office with this tiny edition of Windows XP. You still have one Microsoft application left in Windows - MS Paint. GONE is that nasty Internet Explorer, it does not exist in this Edition. You will have to install Firefox or Opera or any other browser to access the internet. ALSO GONE is Windows Media Player. You will have to grab some kind of player from somewhere if you want to play stuff. GONE also are all Windows noises like startup and shutdown noises, but audio does work. You cannot use Microsoft Office, but you DO have support if you want to install a printer. This XP Pro SP2 Unattended is so tiny @ just 103Mb
