Never actually used it myself but a guy by the name of "experience" has made 5 or so "Tiny XP's" with it. I'm running TinyXP Rev05 on my old laptop, works great. One day I might actually get around to making my own "lite" version of XP and Vista.

Gotta give Raffaz the credit for this one, as he's the one who first introduced me to TinyXP.

I heard of TinyXP a long time ago.. but the first I heard of anyone else on these forums knowing about it was from X1337.
