anyone used Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs?

Not entirely clear on what is missing compared to standard XP. Have any of you used it before?

Released on 8 July 2006, Windows FLP is designed as a inexpensive upgrade towards organisations that had a number of Windows 98/Me computers (that was on the brink of losing all support from Microsoft at the time) in their corporate organisation, but lacked the hardware that is necessary to run Windows XP at the time of its release.
Windows FLP requires about 610 MB of disk space (as opposed to the 1.5 GB disk space requirement for Windows XP) and it has a smaller feature set than Windows XP. The downside is that Windows FLP does not include Paint, Outlook Express and Windows games such as Solitaire. Another limitation is the absence of the Compatibility tab in the Properties... dialog box for executable files.
Windows Thin PC (based on the Windows 7 codebase) replaced Windows FLP on 6 June 2011 as Windows XP was being phased out.

...but nowhere in the world masses of people actually cried for this.
The downside is that Windows FLP does not include Paint, Outlook Express and Windows games such as Solitaire.
...as a matter f fact the very few people that got one legally were extremely happy for having NOT "Rover" in the search dialog.
AFAIK a number of "missing features" listed are actually "good, intelligent removal of senseless bloat" .
