Project: Windows 2007 - a Vista mod designed to look like Beta 2

Post by Glosswired » Sat Jun 15, 2019 3:11 pm

An upcoming mod of Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 that replaces the Aero and Aero Basic themes with versions similar to the ones found in Vista Beta 2. I am working on it alongside a few others. Several others have also contributed to this project too.

It will also come with new wallpapers (including photos taken by the community, Microsoft employees' photos and professional stock photos), sample pictures and user account pictures. It will also come with a Vista Beta 1 theme as an option and possibly some other themes. In terms of software, it will include a Boot Configuration Data Editor GUI by Cosmo. Our aim is to show an alternate vision of Vista; how it could've been if Microsoft kept it more similar to Beta 2 but with a twist and even added other goodies. This goes beyond a step beyond OS mockups.

EDIT 10/03/2020: Removed potentially infringing content.

Just to clear things up, I'm not Cosmo (the XP-C guy). I work on Windows 2007 and wrote the BCD editor gui.

EDIT: And just for proof, here are some screenshots:

If anyone's curious, this is still in development. Megadeth58 is currently working on build 6010, which has been in development hell for around a month. This time it is based directly on build 6002 (with the assets from earlier 2007 builds being added back), due to the bugginess of previous builds. However, he is making good progress and the project seems to be back on track now.

Build 6010 is finally out! We've decided to make it public, so for those who don't feel like joining the server you can download it here: [REMOVED]

Hello, lh11 (UIdesign) here. The website has been temporaily down for quite some time. For unknown reason, the whole webserver decided to die and I couldn't log into CPanel, which resulted in me moving to temp. webhost. It should be back up and running pretty soon.
I haven't forgotten my password I just didn't visited this website for a long time.

Kinda late, but right now it's not being developed. I have lost interest in working on build 6011, plus I'm busy with other things such as college work and a wiki about Windows wallpapers. There is still a chance I/we could resume development at some point in the future though, but only time will tell.
