Hello! I am new here and I would like to start with a comment from a friend that works at Microsoft.

Last year he told me that he was very busy because he was working on building a "special" version of Windows 7 intented to be used by "upper management" at Microsoft.

Do you know anything about this "special" Windows 7?

My friend still works at MS, but I do not want to bother him with lots of questions. Maybe if no one in this forum knows anything then I will ask him for more information.

Thank you all! :D

That's highly unlikely since Windows 7 is becoming EOL, unless it's just some internal custom project, which means it's not something of special interest for Microsoft to put to market. Sure, companies do all kinds of "special" stuff internally, but considering Microsoft owns and manufacturers the software AND the hardware internally they would not have any need to work on such an old platform, but would most likely use Windows 10 as a base to run on their hardware. And the managers would also not have such old hardware requiring an OS that is soon becoming EOL.

Haha yeah no.

Microsoft wants everyone to forget Win7 ever existed. Not to mention many programs written during the 7 era still work fine under 10.
It wasn't so much a problem moving from 7 to 10 as Xp to 7 with enterprises still hovering on IE6, 16-bit and other programs with the "good enough" mentality.

I think its Win7 extended support to 2022, for some money for use on companies...

That's quite unlikely, OP mentioned that it was only being used for 'higher management' at Microsoft. Although, I don't know why they'd want to use Win7...
