Please can someone tell me if vLite will work with the current leaked build of Windows 7?

Thankyou! :)

It probably will, but removing components is more likely to break something. The unattended side should still work great.

Do you think the vLite team will make a version available for Windows 7 when it becomes RTM?

they started with nLite (for XP) and then made vLite around the time when vista came out so one would assume that they will

I've heard that Microsoft will maybe not use Minwin, but instead do other things to optimize the OS so that it still has many wonderful, better than Vista features, but not be the resource pig Vista is, so maybe there might not be any need for anything like vLite after all? What do yout think?

XP is hardly heavy on resources, but there's still a huge demand for nLite. Microsoft still sell XP Embedded. There will always be a need/want for reduced footprint OSes.

nLite also works on 2000.

Im sure it will work with M1, and probably M2 but i think m3 will begin the start of the revolutionary changes so lets just wait for 7lite. or whatever the RTM name will be.
