There is two problems with this topic.
The first problem is this is highly illegal, as there inst any site version of Premium, so you couldn't even claim that you have multiple copies of it.
The seccond problem I've noticed with this project is that it isnt really a custom job. You're just changing a few bitmaps and vLiting it. Thats not really a custom OS, as your just stealing Microsoft's work, and claiming it as your own....
I seriously doubt that this will go anywhere, but I'll leave the topic open...

Ok, just Nevermind, GOD, I was just gonna create a Version of Vista that worked on older hardware (less that 256 MB & 1 GHz Pentium III)

by minimalizing the features and requirements


so like a 128 MB 900 MHz, PC could run Vista Lite (renamed custom)

Geez, i guy can dream cant he?

Just use XP? You're not going to gain much in Vista.
