If they are going to test Windows Lite through the insider program, that sounds like you would be able to install it on current hardware. Maybe only certain devices would be supported?
If WindowsLIte is so different, I like the name MicrosoftOS.
Do you think when they announce WindowLite and rename it that Microsoft will also rename Windows CoreOS to remove the Windows name?
Windows Suck. Don't do it Microsoft. Stop with these dumb decisions
Yet you are hear listening about wonderful Windows.
