Anyone who downloaded and installed Windows 10 Redstone 5 Build 17650 for Skip Ahead may have noticed references to the previously unheard of Windows 10 Lean. Microsoft has made no announcement about this, so WTF is Windows Lean?

Microsoft Is Working on Windows 10 Lean Edition

It's expected to be 2GB smaller than a standard Windows 10 Pro x64 install.

Microsoft has realized there is a problem using Windows 10 on lower-end devices that ship with limited storage. That problem being, once you start downloading updates there's not enough space available to install them without the use of an external drive. One answer to this is getting device manufacturers to ship more storage, the other is to cut down the size of Windows 10. Option No. 2 is obviously easier, so that's what Microsoft is doing.
