Speaking of that, what is the minimum level of support that you'd need/want for WT7?


Assuming WT7 is based on Silverlight and XNA, .NET 4.0 and DX11 would be required, but what about everything else? Explorer? Services?


What could be *cut out* of Windows 7 and still provide a decent platform for WT7?

Why base this on Windows 7?


Why not use XP as a base? It has considerably lower system requirements and a near-complete implementation of Win32. Things like DirectX 11 can probably be backported without too much trouble.
