The other day I tried the TinyXp Beast edition, a cut-down version of the normal Windows XP. The instalation took around 320mb whereas the normal XP is more or less triple that, furthermore TinyXp Beast only requires about 40mb memory (fresh install)! I don’t really have anything bad to say about it, but I wouldn’t recommend it people who don’t feel like experimenting a little since in the beginning you can run into some minor obstacles. For example me and my friends where having a lan party and wanted to play Starcraft but one of the network protocols was missing, so bits and pieces had to be downloaded and copied into windows directories. However everything has a fix. If you want to try TinyXp you should look for torrents (look in Piratebay), there’s a few different versions to choose from. You can read more about the details along with every torrent.

    Hi, I am a big TinyXP fan.
    I´m having some trouble for file sharing over a local network.
    I can work on other machines shared folders, but they can´t over mine.
    May be my case is similar to yours (as you say “one of the network protocols was missing”).
    How can i find and install those protocols that helped you?

    Thanx in advance.

      Hey! Sorry for not posting earlier. If I remember correctly the fix was related to installing one or more network protocols which weren’t included in TinyXP. Usually, on a ‘full’ Windows system you have a wide range of these protocols that you can install through advanced settings in the network devices control panel. Unfortunately I’m not using this particular system anymore and don’t remember the exact protocol, but go google around and also check which are the default protocols on a normal system. Then you could download the protocol files and place them in their corresponding folder/s. Hope this helps and don’t hesitate to ask again if you can’t fix this 🙂
