    Windows XP USB Stick Edition

    Hey folks,

    Found a torrent with the name of WindowsXP USB Stick edition, anyone else heard of this?
    I downloaded it and the image is 150mb.. Contains a bat file for installation and a cutdown I386 folder with all the setup and files needed for a basic install.

    Has anyone ever tried it? I might give it a shot on an old HD and see what its like but am thinking its going to be VERY cutdown.. possibly missing all the usefull stuff

    Sounds like 2FastXP that was just renamed. 2FastXP was badged as being able to run off a USB stick. I never tried it because the developer's site said there were a ton of bugs - heeding him to go back and try to rebuild it again.

    There should be a new release of 2Fast soon. Personally, I don't mind TinyXP Beast Edition. It works well, and has a lot of features (including wireless support) built into it. My old 800 MHz laptop with 128 meg ram boots up in 20 seconds with Beast Edition

    Thanks, I won't bother trying it then

    I'm new to this optimization thing - I just loaded up XP Pro and off I went. Will google TinyXP now and take a look..
