Windows 10 Lean

The next version of Microsoft’s Windows 10 will include a new “Lean edition” developed for devices with less storage space. It will be offered to OEMs for use in low-cost laptops and tablets. This slimmed-down Windows 10 is aimed at devices with 16 GB of storage space, as the Lean system only takes up 2 GB of space. Twitter user @tfwboredom was the first to discover references to the Lean version in the latest preview build of Redstone 5 (17650). Microsoft reduced the need for storage space by doing away with elements that generally aren’t necessary on entry-level devices, and applications like Internet Explorer. Even Regedit has been scrapped… More information about the Windows 10 Lean version should be forthcoming during the Build conference in early May.
