What Is Tiny 11?

Tiny11 is a lightweight version of Windows 11 designed to run on old PCs that don’t meet Windows 11’s strict system requirements. It is developed by NTDEV and based on Windows 11 22H2.

Microsoft does not allow the distribution of non-genuine Windows 11. Therefore, to install Tiny 11, you need to download the Tiny 11 ISO from websites like Internet Archive or use Tiny11Builder to make one by yourself.

  1. Clipchamp
  2. News
  3. Weather

What Is Atlas OS?

Atlas is an open-source, transparent project. It has its own website. According to the description on its website, it modifies Windows to eliminate drawbacks that negatively impact gaming performance.

It is designed for gamers. It can reduce system latency, network latency, and input lag, while maintaining system privacy and prioritizing performance.

To install Atlas OS, you need to fresh install Windows and then run a file to delete or disable some apps or features. You can get the Atlas OS installation guide here.

Atlas OS removes the majority of telemetry embedded within Windows and allows users to disable some security features within their needs. For example:

  • Windows Defender & SmartScreen
  • Windows Update
  • No automatic updates
  • No major feature updates
  • CPU mitigations
  • User Account Control
  • Core isolation features

It also removes commonly unneeded applications, configures many aspects of the interface, disables advertisements, and much more.

Tiny 11 vs Atlas OS

In this part, I will compare the two systems from the system requirements and features.

Tiny 11 vs Atlas OS: System Requirements

Tiny 11 System Requirements

  • 2GB of RAM (200MB is also OK but the running speed is very slow)
  • 8GB of storage space
  • No TPM
  • A 32-bit or 64-bit processor

Atlas OS System Requirements

To install Atlas OS, you need to install Windows first. Therefore, Atlas OS system requirements are the same as Windows 11 system requirements. The difference between Atlas OS and Windows 11 is that Atlas OS can reduce background CPU usage by 2% to 10%, free up 1.1GB of RAM usage from boot, and improve around 100 FPS.

Tiny 11 vs Atlas OS: Features

Tiny 11 and Atlas OS are very similar. Both of them just delete and disable some apps and features from Windows 11. They don’t add any new features to the OS.

However, they still have some differences. For example:

  • Tiny 11 removes more apps and features. The latest Tiny 11 Core can even shrink the Windows 11 23H2 ISO to 2 GB and the installation size to 3.3 GB.
  • Atlas OS mainly deletes or disables apps and features that may affect the gaming performance. In addition, it also disables certain networking features that COULD have security vulnerabilities.

Both of them disable the Windows update feature. If you want to enjoy Windows 11 new features, you need to reinstall them.
