    A more modular installation would be great, it could help reducing the space of that. Last time I saw it was on a x86 version of Windows Embedded. Not sure if it is still produced/supported by Microsoft. Like even if I use only the Pro version on my systems, I don't need at all ISS stuffs an related. But I confess, I do not know how much space does it take on winsxs folder.

    Microsoft has a habbit of randomly breaking the DISM servers.

    An offline image does not care about online servers?

    Will do, considering something with a low power draw from AMD for the machine, ala RX 5600 XT / 5700 XT, since the PSU is only 550W with one outlet for a GPU.

    An offline image doesn't account for your current file versions.

    I have seen that folder get up to 25 to 30GB in size, literally. Oh, and I personally do not give a flip about Android and as for compressed images, there used to be a compressed image of Windows 8 on a 16GB tablet and it ran quite well.

    I wonder how far away Microsoft is from running userspace on top of a Linux kernel.

    this usually happens when a new version is released to mainstream channel updates for some weeks to 1-2 months.
    This is not going to happen, they moved Linux kernel into a Hyper-V VM with WSL2 (while in WSL1 there is a dll translater for syscalls). The only bad thing is in-host file access (especially write) is damn slow now.
    how did you check the size? and in which windows version?

    The compatibility crap is the main reason I even have Windows installed :p

    Well, windows is very customisable. You can remove almost everything you don't want in windows, but it will take time, of course

    I can still play windows 95 games on windows 10 ryzen rig and without emulators (excluding those meant for dos layer.. well technically they could run on 32 bit version of 10, don't remember which version ditched the old dos compatibility layer on 32 bit x86 versions).
