Welcome to IWETHEY!

New But why tho?
Every time I've investigated one of those "lite" things, it turns out that they basically break more than they fix, all in the name of removing "bloat"*.

If security is your issue, there are better ways of reducing your attack surface** and improving your security posture*** than deliberately breaking the host operating system.

The whole Windows Lite thing ends up religiously serving the Great God Bloat Removal* - it's reminiscent of the olden days on OS X, where every troubleshooting process started with "zap the PRAM!", even though the PRAM was involved in only a very tiny subset of Mac problems, and unnecessarily zapping it would reset a bunch of stuff you'd rather not reset if you didn't have to.

*One man's bloat is another man's essential feature! See: any large software product that's on general sale.

**Uninstall programs and features you don't need, turn off networking features you don't need, don't open your firewall to the world, etc.

***Good internet hygiene, solid ad-blocker, don't install sketchy browser extensions or software, keep your browser and OS up-to-date including the built-in security features, don't use public wifi for anything important. Ya know. The usual.
New Well.. Liff Was simpler in (my) Win98 days, for one.
I'm not silly-enough to duel with youse Pros on a philosophical level, but it's still a fact por moi that: That particular 'Windows-Lite' mainly deleted the cruft within the Windoze package ..of advertainment quality [aka Selling stuff ]. It did not alter /attempt-to: replace, patch or maul: OS-guts--unless they lied (yet succeeded, apparently).
Result was: NO Issues occurred--in my 'lite' usage (not tested by all your daily standards, what with calculating eigenfunctions within quantum chromodynamics in the background--hardly available in '98 Doze w/ a side-dish of QEMM in DOS. And no: I didn't perform double-blind boot-ups, With and Without plain-vanilla ..thus Stats.

(I appear to be locked-in to bloody-Apple until: some other Mfg. creates its own H/ware + S/Ware ..more Better.)
This presumes, long-term that the Planet has not become terminally-Fucked via its overload of homo-saps, each year becoming more feral, destructive and plain-fucking-Silly.

PS: There are no undetected errors.

Maybe I should have been born-ded in the days of that iconic photo of All the great physics minds of last-century--standing together. At least, I once saw the aged R. A. Millikan [the oil drop experiment re E/M of the electron, etc.] ..wandering the campus at eventide. But then I'd be dead now so, never mind ;^>.
