According to Microsoft, Windows Thin PC is a new, locked-down version of Windows 7 aimed at enterprises that wish to repurpose aging PCs as thin clients. Just a quick look at the recently-released release candidate (RC) version of this upcoming OS suggests, however, that it's much more than that: It's also a stripped-down embedded version of Windows 7, which brings much of the full functionality of Microsoft's latest OS to legacy PCs. This is quite interesting, and should prove to be a more compelling offering than WinTPC's predecessor, Windows for Legacy PCs, which was based on Windows XP Embedded.

Here is a screenshot gallery that shows off the install process--which includes a few different screens than the normal desktop versions of Windows 7--as well as some post-install desktop shots.
