Anyone Experiment with WES7, POSReady7, Thin Client 7

Post by arcadianblue »

I am curious to see if anyone has ever used any one of these Windows versions to create or use as a every day OS? What was your experience?
I am using a custom image of WES7 on my Getac V-200X (removed all unwanted items from the deployed image) and so far it has proven light on RAM usage.
I have tried Thin Client, although it has more limitations regarding features.
POSReady 7 has proven not to be of any more benefit than your regular Windows 7 operating system and also had a large foot print.

My goal was for the ideal operating system (not including addon software) is to have a wallpaper, paint, notepad, aero theme, run command, CMD prompt, windows media player without the bloated media center, wifi connection and use less than 350mb of RAM at idle. I have no need for any remote features/crap or recovery/system restore (I use 3rd party image back software).

I love to hear other's experiences with these unique operating systems.

I ran a modified install of POSReady7 on my old Thinkpad for 2 years, it worked pretty well and i didn't really have to modify it too much.

oh btw can you shoot me a direct message here or on discord (AngelHoney#0069) because i'm really interested to know how you did those customized builds

I use POSReady 7 on a PC on a daily basis and it is pretty much everything you could wish for - Windows 7 experience without all the bloat (e.g. the Media Center). It also has the advantage of being easily installable, unlike the WES7.

I'd rather go with ThinPC (no need to build any deploy images, installs like Win7 does). NTLite could allow you to free up some RAM and drive space if needed
This signature has seen better days, for sure...

Will try experimenting with POSReady 7 and Thin Client images with NTLite. My goal is a small foot print and low RAM demands without any bloated features.
