Windows 7.1 (project)

Post by Cosmo » Thu Nov 14, 2019 3:54 pm

After completing my work on XP-C I've decided to start a new project, this time using Windows 7!

It'll include all current Windows 7 updates out-of-box and aims to include support for some Windows 10 programs, such as Groove. I mainly wanted to do this as Windows 7's support is ending pretty soon and adding a bit of support with newer Windows 10 apps would be a cool addition.

It's currently in the early planning stages, and I want to hear your thoughts. What should I add?
Longhorn for Life!

I'm curious how Windows 10 application support can be implemented.

This sounds so good i would use this as my main even tho i normally would never consider using a modified version of Windows. My dream OS would be like a Windows 8 base because of the better File Explorer/taskmanager , UEFI support, USB 3.1 (it says a lot that 8.1 installs fine from a normal installer on my Ryzen build while 7 doesn't) but these could be implemented into 7 for sure i just haven't got any idea how but i'm sure you could figure it out (got no experience with making custom windows images if it isn't obvious). But i prefer full aero over 8/10s UI and having support for Windows 10 software like Adobe 2020 Suite or Dx12/UWP games would be amazing too. So i was constantly switching between 7/8 on my old build and now on 10 on my current PC and was never satisfied. Put the Ryzen/modern Intel patch in it too, i can't be the only one on a modern system wanting to use modern software who hates Windows 10 right?

That sounds awesome! Would love to see this. Support for some Windows 10 apps like you mentioned would be really cool!
